Mitch Daniels

President, Purdue University

Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. became the 12th president of Purdue University in January 2013, at the conclusion of his second term as Governor of the State of Indiana. At Purdue, Daniels launched a series of initiatives called Purdue Moves that provide bold answers to some of the greatest challenges facing higher education today. The four pillars of Purdue Moves— affordability and accessibility, transformative education, world-changing research, and STEM leadership —leverage Purdue’s historic strengths and promote investment in new ideas, guiding the university in its mission to deliver higher education at the highest proven value.

Mitch Landrieu

Former Mayor, New Orleans, Louisiana

When Mitch Landrieu was sworn in as the 61st Mayor of New Orleans in May 2010, the recovery from Hurricane Katrina had stalled, the city teetered on bankruptcy and the New Orleans Police Department was under federal investigation. Under Landrieu, New Orleans has become one America’s great comeback stories. He kick-started the recovery by fast-tracking over 100 projects and securing billions in federal funding for schools, hospitals, parks and critical infrastructure. Landrieu brought sound fiscal management, balanced budgets, and ethical contracting to City Hall, leading to the City’s highest-ever credit rating and over $8 billion in private development. His top priority has been public safety — reforming the police department and reducing the city’s murder rate.
