More than 270 faculty members were honored (Nov. 29) for their years of service to Purdue University during the Faculty Service Recognition Luncheon, hosted by the Office of the Provost in the Purdue Memorial Union’s North Ballroom.

“Recognizing our esteemed faculty members is a wonderful way to acknowledge their dedication and invaluable contributions to our academic community — for the countless lives they have touched during their time at this great institution,” said Patrick Wolfe, Purdue provost and executive vice president for academic affairs and diversity.

“We thank these faculty, those who have reached their 10-year anniversary at Purdue while others are marking 40 and even 50 years at our campus. We thank them, not just for their time, but also for their continued collaborative efforts and commitment to equipping the next generation of leaders in solving the most challenging problems of our world today, tomorrow and in years to come.”

Honorees were those who in 2023 have completed years of service totaling 10, 15, 20, 25 and longer periods in five-year increments. They are listed with their department or school. The images captured of the event can be reviewed at the Faculty Years of Service photo gallery website.
