PYFA Welcome Event

What is PYFA?

The Purdue Young Faculty Association (aka PYFA) provides opportunities for incoming and existing faculty to socialize and foster friendships and connections across the Purdue community.  "Young Faculty" is open-ended and self-selecting; professors of all ranks and ages are welcome to take part in PYFA events.

PYFA organizes a mix of ongoing and special events.  In addition to regular events, PYFA's signature event, with generous support of the Office of the Provost, is a welcome party every fall at the beginning of the semester for "new" and "young" faculty to meet and mingle.

You should receive emails from PYFA inviting you to events, as well as various Lafayette festivals, Purdue Convocations performances, and other opportunities to socialize with faculty from departments across campus. New faculty are added to the PYFA mailing list each Fall; however, sometimes information is not available for email contact, and mid-year hires may unintentionally be missed. If you do not receive these emails and would like to be on the list, please send a request to pyfa@purdue.edu

Have a suggestion for a future PYFA event? Want to ask a specific question about PYFA? Please contact one or both of the co-chairs directly.
