Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels speaks in Loeb Playhouse after being elected Thursday, June 21, 2012, by Purdue Board of Trustees as the university's 12th president. Seated is Trustees chair Keith Krach.

Purdue‘s trustees are expected to approve Mitch Daniels‘s contract to be the next university president this Saturday.

The trustees are scheduled to talk about specifics of the contract on Friday, the first day of the two-day board meeting, with a vote on the board‘s agenda for Saturday.

Daniels takes over at Purdue after he leaves the governor‘s office Jan. 14. He has asked for a largely performance-based contract ever since he was elected the school‘s next president by the trustees in June.

While he won‘t discuss numbers other than the length of the term – five years, Daniels says he thinks his contract will set a good example of fiscal responsibility to taxpayers and families whose money goes to Purdue, but will also show that the university is committed to the success of its students.
