Purdue Road Map for Transformative Undergraduate Education

Classroom of Teachers and Students

Our Next Giant Leap:

As of 2019, Purdue is experiencing unprecedented success in undergraduate education. We matriculated the largest ever incoming class last fall, and the past year’s graduating class reached record high 4- and 6-year graduation rates.

Building on our success, it is incumbent upon us to anticipate the future. What should Purdue’s undergraduate program look like in 2030, and what should we do now to ensure that our undergraduate students continue to experience a high-quality education? The Road Map for Transformative Undergraduate Education is aimed at establishing a framework for considering these questions and others crucial to address as we look to the future.

Creating a road map for the future of undergraduate education at Purdue has been, and continues to be, a collaborative process. It began as a conversation with members of the Teaching Academy and Associate Deans for Undergraduate Education in December 2017. The conversation expanded to nine “listening sessions” over the course of the spring 2018 semester with faculty, staff, and students from across campus.

  • In the fall of 2018, the Teaching Academy sponsored four panel discussions with 150th Anniversary Professors to discuss some of listening sessions and in the spring of 2019, two well-attended open forums were held.

The outcome of the open forums can be viewed here.

In addition, the working draft of the road map document can be reviewed/downloaded here
