University is a proud member of the NCAA and the Big Ten Conference.
Founded in 1869, Purdue University has forged a tradition
of education, research and service to the state, the United
States and the world. As a Purdue student-athlete, you will
receive the highest quality of education possible, coupled
with a great intercollegiate athletics experience.
At Purdue University, we place value in
the intercollegiate athletic experience of our student-athletes.
Our athletics department operates within the overall mission
of Purdue University and is an integral part of Purdue’s
educational program. Purdue’s athletics department supports
the educational mission of our institution through its pursuit
of higher education and ultimate graduation of student-athletes.
The athletics student services staff is
committed to the success of each student-athlete. The demands
of intercollegiate athletics require every student-athlete
to acquire an ability to balance a rigorous schedule and to
confront outside influences that are contrary to the goals
you have set first as a student and second as a student-athlete.
Our staff will be there with you each step of the way.
As Associate Athletics Director for Student
Services, I enjoy the opportunity to see our student-athletes
grow and mature during their years at Purdue. Attending Purdue
University will make you a better and more productive individual.
Purdue University will provide a first-class education that
will last you a lifetime. So, jump on board to begin the journey
of a lifetime.
Ed Howat, Ed.D.
Associate Athletics Director for Student Services
