Former Indiana Governor and current Purdue University President Mitch Daniels makes a stop in Evansville today to talk higher education.

Daniels spoke at the Rotary Club's weekly luncheon. He outlined some of the challenges that those in higher education face these days including the rising costs of student loans and increased competition.

Since taking the reins at Purdue nearly a year ago, the university has frozen its tuition rates and cut costs. The former governor says he's enjoying his time outside the governor's mansion.

"One of my predecessors once said," said Daniels, "if he's doing his job right, no one learns more on a college campus than the president, and that's certainly true of me. I'm learning a lot every day."

Daniels also touched on Purdue's future expansion of its engineering program which will bring in more than 100 new faculty members.
