Former Gov. Mitch Daniels to Receive Award Named After Baruchs Professor Savas

NEW YORK, NY-April 13, 2015 Former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels will receive the first annual Savas Award for Public-Private Partnerships on May 5, 2015, in a ceremony in Lower Manhattan hosted by Reason Foundation.

The award is named for Dr. E.S. “Steve” Savas, Presidential Professor in Baruch College’s School of Public Affairs, who is a former First Deputy City Administrator of New York City and an internationally known authority on public-private partnerships and privatization. The award honors individuals or organizations whose actions have improved the cost-effective provision of public services through partnerships with private organizations.

Daniels now serves as the President of Purdue University. During his tenure as governor from 2005 to 2013, Indiana went from bankruptcy to a AAA credit rating, led the nation in infrastructure building, and passed sweeping education reforms, including the nation's first statewide school choice voucher program.
