Give to GPRI and make a difference...

Purdue's Global Policy Research Institute is the nexus where science, technology, and policy meet.  With the financial support of its friends, GPRI will continue to:
  • Incentivize faculty in policy making - over $610,000 has been awarded to Purdue researchers in 21 different policy related projects;
  • Stage global issues 'salons' in California, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of the leadership role Purdue can play in advancing research knowledge and policy solutions;
  • Educate Purdue students to be policy savvy and globally and culturally aware through the Seminar in Global Policy Issues Course offered during the spring semester, and through policy-related summer internships;
  • Host campus events including "grand challenge" conferences and distinguished lectures that provide understanding of the connections between global headlines and policy developments.
