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.

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.
