About Us

Leadership & Professional Development Initiative, a focus of the Division of Student Academic Affairs, has merged with Civic Engagement & Leadership Development, formerly a part of Student Activities and Organizations. The merger provides synergies between the two missions and better serves the Purdue and Greater-Lafayette communities.
