Book of Great Teachers

The Book of Great Teachers, a permanent 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 for inclusion in this book is repeated every five years.

The most recent Induction Ceremony took place on December 2, 2013. For a full list of inducted faculty, click here.

Nominations will be accepted again in early 2018.
