Ever True

Make a profound impact at Purdue University by partnering with the College of Health and Human Sciences. Please consider supporting our 2018-19 funding initiatives.

Student Support

Support for undergraduate students includes scholarships, a lifeline for HHS students who require financial assistance in order to attend Purdue. It also includes the Global Learning Fund, which provides cultural immersion opportunities so that more HHS students can study, intern or travel abroad. Graduate student support, one of HHS’s greatest needs, can provide not only basic funding but also opportunities to work alongside researchers and professors in the classroom to help shape the students professionally.


Endowed and distinguished professorships are the hallmark of a world-class university. HHS’s goal is to establish named professorships across the college in order to recruit and retain exceptional faculty. An endowed named deanship for HHS will provide the dean supplemental funding to address priority areas such as learning, discovery and engagement; distinguish the college and the dean as preeminent at Purdue and among peers; and expand the college’s research enterprise by leveraging external funding. Rising Star professorships help HHS recruit and retain promising early- to mid-career faculty.


Emerging programs offer the opportunity to address healthy aging, public health, chronic disease detection and prevention, health and wellness, and critical health issues for children, such as autism.


Initiatives for facilities include infrastructure support of the college’s first magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research equipment, which will advance research being done across HHS. Opportunities to fund renovations in Lambert Fieldhouse, home to the Department of Health and Kinesiology, and space improvements in the School of Nursing, are also available.
