Book of Great Teachers
The Book of Great Teachers, a permanent wall display in the west foyer of the Purdue Memorial Union, is an extension of Academy Park. It was dedicated on April 23, 1999.
The book bears the names of 316 faculty members, past and present, who have devoted their lives to excellence in teaching and scholarship. They were chosen by their students and their peers as Purdue’s finest educators. The nomination process for inclusion in this book is repeated every five years.
