Welcome message

Dear Purdue students, parents, and friends,

Welcome to our inaugural e-letter, Global Affairs G.O.L.D.! It is our desire to stay connected with you, and to keep you informed about what we are doing at Purdue and around the world.

Our new 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, and of course, with you – our students, parents, alumni and friends. 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 with us to make Purdue the model for how a large public research university can be a global university.

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. Our Office develops collaborative engagements with key strategic partners overseas.

We invite you to explore our website to find out about our growing, life-enriching 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.

With my best wishes,

Suresh V. Garimella
Chief Global Affairs Officer
Goodson Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering
