The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Purdue University-North Central Campus

Purdue University North Central (PNC), established in 1948, is located in the town of Westville, in LaPorte County Indiana, 55 miles East of Chicago, and 10 miles south of Lake Michigan and serves more than 6,000 students, mostly, but not limited to northwest Indiana. Under multi-state exchange programs, students attend from Michigan and Illinois, for example. PNC boasts one of the largest concurrent enrollment programs in the Purdue University system, serving approximately 45 high schools in the region, enabling high school students to complete college courses, thus encouraging college readiness, persistence, and successful graduation in a reasonable amount of time, with less debt. PNC offers 24 Bachelor's degrees and an MBA. The Student Services and Activities Center, to be completed in 2016, will help contribute to a more complete college experience and learning community for our entire university and the communities we serve. PNC, considered by many to be the most beautiful campus in the world-renowned Purdue University system, boasts some 270 rolling acres with a sculpture garden.
