CRS - Purdue Partnership
Purdue University and Catholic Relief Services (CRS) have entered into a strategic partnership that will bring value to both organizations. CRS is an international humanitarian agency with signature programs in emergency response and recovery, agricultural livelihoods, and health. Collaborative opportunities are expected to include joint research, publications and presentations, joint funding proposals to donors, training, internships for students, and awareness raising and student outreach.
From Purdue’s perspective, the partnership is expected to create value by expanding access to funding opportunities, and by providing powerful research, engagement and learning experiences that prepare students, faculty and staff to be the global leaders of tomorrow and strengthen their intercultural competencies.
