Become a Faculty Affiliate

The Purdue Policy Research Institute (PPRI) has a mandate to encourage and support groundbreaking and interdisciplinary policy-based research, and Purdue faculty, scholars, and students are central for PPRI to realize this mandate. To achieve this mandate, we invite all Purdue faculty and scholars who would like to highlight the policy implications of their research. PPRI’s faculty affiliates represent a range of disciplines and interests, and PPRI strives to connect faculty affiliates with colleagues and research opportunities across Purdue to foster interdisciplinary research.
