The Purdue University system is working on a plan to bring jobs back to the area.
The news comes as Purdue faces an exodus of talent from the university, with the university recently hiring an assistant dean for human resources, the Associated Press reported.
It is unclear whether the move will lead to job opportunities for current employees.
The university’s human resources department has a long history of hiring and training candidates in other fields, including science, engineering and technology.
The department is now looking to add another associate dean position.
