To honor President Mitch Daniels’ decade of leadership at Purdue University, the city of West Lafayette along with Purdue University trustees have agreed to rename a portion of State Street in West Lafayette as Mitch Daniels Boulevard.

The naming was announced on Friday, Dec. 2, as the university community began its MitchFest celebration with a Mitch StreetFest near Purdue Memorial Union at the corner of Grant Street and what will soon be Mitch Daniels Boulevard.

Purdue is celebrating MitchFest as Daniels’ final year of presidency draws to a close.

Daniels announced in June 2022 that he would step down at the end of December.
