Purdue trustees endorse launch of One Health initiative

WEST LAFAYETTE — Advancing a strategy several years in the making, Purdue University trustees on Friday (June 7) endorsed the launch of the One Health initiative. One Health adds to and synergizes with the university’s initiatives in Indianapolis, the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business, and Purdue Computes.

The strategic move unifies the strengths of Purdue’s comprehensive, health-focused academic units and research programs while leveraging new investments in health-related institutes, partnerships, and disciplines. The board also adopted the university’s operating budget for the 2025 fiscal year, approved the construction of the Academic Success Building on the Purdue University in Indianapolis campus, the renaming of the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory as the Willie M. Reed Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory, and additional actions related to Senate Enrolled Act 202; and reaffirmed Purdue’s long-standing commitment to institutional neutrality, among its actions.
