BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University President Michael McRobbie and Purdue University President Mitch Daniels are scheduled to take part in interviews the public affairs cable TV network C-SPAN is conducting on Big Ten campuses.

McRobbie is scheduled to be interviewed Thursday aboard C-SPAN's 45-foot mobile studio during the morning call-in program "Washington Journal" with audience participation through phone calls and social media. Daniels is scheduled to be interviewed on Tuesday.

Each will be interviewed about public policy issues in higher education, including affordability, debt, admissions, academic standards and career preparation.

It's the 21st year the bus has been on the road, but the first time it has gone on a tour of Big Ten campuses.
