Support for the Department of Health and Kinesiology plays an important role in our progress and continuing success. Donor gifts help us develop future leaders in their professions and communities whether on campus, in our state, or around the world. Regardless of the size, donor gifts enrich student learning, enhance faculty research, and increase HK's competitive edge to attract the best students and faculty.
Please consider supporting one or more of our funding priorities:
- Unrestricted Gifts: Unspecified gifts support our mission in more ways than we can list. They support special projects for students who are inspired to go above and beyond their standard activities. They are used to support invited guests and conferences that expand our students' experience well beyond their Purdue faculty. They are critical to special events that define our community of students and scholars. Broadly speaking, unrestricted gifts sustain and create an environment of world-class excellence.
- Faculty Support: Our most valuable assets are people. Support for named professorships, for visiting professors, and in support of faculty research assure Purdue's place as an elite program in which students benefit from the best faculty and cutting-edge research in our field.
- Student Support: The best programs attract the best students, but not all of the best students have the resources to join us. Scholarships, research stipends, summer research internships, and study abroad opportunities are all ways through which we can support students based upon need and upon excellence.
- A.H. Ismail Center for Health, Exercise, and Nutrition: The Ismail Center provides faculty a centralized facility for conducting multidisciplinary research in health, exercise and nutrition; students a clinical laboratory for acquiring and polishing technical and leadership skills; individuals a wellness center for achieving and maintaining a maximal degree of health; and the local community a resource for increasing physical activity and exercise participation.
