WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is spending two days on the Purdue University campus this week meeting with faculty members ahead of becoming the school's president in January.

Daniels is scheduled to take part in two forums each Tuesday and Wednesday on the West Lafayette campus with professors and others from eight of Purdue's colleges. Meetings with other colleges are planned for October.

The Journal & Courier reports University Senate chairman Paul Robinson told that group Monday that faculty members must take advantage of their access to Daniels before he takes over. Robinson says he believes Daniels is making a strong attempt at being open-minded as he learns more about Purdue.

Some Purdue students and professors have complained about Daniels' lack of an academic background.
