(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Governor Daniels is prodding Indiana colleges to graduate more students.

Daniels told a conference of higher education leaders at IUPUI he'll continue a push to connect state funding to degrees awarded, not enrollment.

The governor is encouraging more schools to follow Ball State in offering a chance to finish your degree in three years instead of four.

Daniels says he'll take a dim view of regional campuses of Purdue and Indiana universities pursuing big enrollment and construction growth; he says that's not their role.

And he says universities shouldn't be offering two-year associate's degrees, nor offering remedial help for skills students should have learned in high school.

He says those tasks belong to Ivy Tech as the state's community-college network.

Daniels says there should be a place for every student seeking a degree, but says that's not the same as saying that every student can be admitted to every institution.
