A Message from Dr. Suresh Garimella

Dr. Suresh Garimella

Dear friend and neighbor,

Welcome to Purdue University!

The Office of Global Affairs is the key point of contact for Purdue University's global partnerships with institutions of higher education, governmental and non-governmental agencies, global businesses and corporations, students, parents and alumni. Our Office of International Programs, Global Policy Research Institute, academic Colleges, research and educational Centers, and many other programs and initiatives at Purdue University are working together in meeting global challenges.

For undergraduate and graduate students and visiting scholars, our Office of International Programs provides rich educational and research experiences here and abroad. Our Global Policy Research Institute makes Purdue's significant research contributions and analysis available to inform and influence public opinion. We look forward to developing collaborative engagements between the public and private sectors at the state, national and global levels.

We invite you to explore our website to see how Purdue University can be a partner with you and your organization. We have provided information here concerning our growing activities in global education, research and engagement, in our role as the leading "international land-grant university."

Wherever you are, Purdue is not far away. By working together, we can build a richer experience for the global citizen. We welcome your comments and inquiries.
