Message from the President
Welcome to Purdue University, one of the premier research institutions in the country. We are also a sizable force for engagement and economic development around the world and right here at home in Indiana.
I believe that no institution of any kind means more to this state today or tomorrow than Purdue. Our students are some of the best in the world and are recognized leaders among their peers. Our faculty -- as teachers and researchers -- give rise to the innovative new goods, services, and companies on which American and Hoosier prosperity will be built. I am a passionate believer in higher education and I am filled with appreciation for the Purdue we know and excitement for the still greater Purdue that can be.
As a community of problem-solvers and game-changers -- faculty, students, staff, alumni, retirees and partners -- we are working to shape the future of higher education at Purdue and beyond.
