INDIANAPOLIS | A Valparaiso man who teaches biology at Purdue North Central in Westville has been appointed to a four-year term on the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
Gov. Mike Pence on Friday named Jason Curtis, an associate professor of biology, the faculty representative to the 14-member body that plans and coordinates programs at Indiana's public universities.
The Republican governor said he's confident Curtis will help fulfill his goals of making college more accessible and affordable.
Curtis earned his doctorate at Purdue University and began working at Purdue North Central in 2000. He is assistant chairman of the biology/chemistry department.
