LEAD Community

About the Community

The Roger C. Stewart Leadership & Professional Development Department (LEAD) is partnering with Purdue University's alumni association - Purdue for Life - to create an online community dedicated to providing students with opportunities and resources in support of their career and leadership development.

We invite you to join this community! As a member you will have opportunities to engage with alumni, university faculty and staff, and your peers to:

  • Extend your networks
  • Develop your leadership and career readiness competencies
  • Enhance your career knowledge

Specific opportunities include:

  • Mentoring and coaching relationships
  • Conversations
  • Presentations and workshops
  • Networking and social events
  • Resource sharing

As and extension of our Essential Career Skills Series, we will also be hosting virtual "Coffee Chats" where you can ask questions and discuss various topics with guest speakers. These chats will be informal and interactive. Keep an eye on our social media for where and when these Coffee Chats will take place!
