President’s Parent & Family Leadership Council

Sending a child to college is a life-changing experience for a family and our goal is to enrich this chapter in their lives. The President’s Parent & Family Leadership Council represents the larger community of the Purdue University parents and serves as an advisory group to the university through counsel, feedback, and support throughout the academic year. Our mission is to build a community to engage with the university through participation, service, and philanthropic support to invest in the educational and long-term success of our students.

Guiding Principles

  • Enrich student and family experiences with Purdue University
  • Champion Purdue University on campus, in home areas, and within business networks
  • Support the mission and priorities of Purdue University through participation of one on-campus meeting annually in the fall
