Our Mission is to RECRUIT, RETAIN, and RECOGNIZE leadership donors, advocates and volunteers who support Purdue University.
The President's Council was established in 1972 to recognize the distinguished alumni and friends who understand that the University can fulfill its educational goals only with their loyal support and financial involvement. These individuals have paved the way for the future and continue to support the excellent education afforded Purdue students.
For more than 30 years, the Council's membership has been instrumental in Purdue's progress and success by giving to a multitude of University programs. The Council currently includes more than 17,000 loyal Purdue alumni and friends.The goals of the President's Council are to:
- Provide an increasing pattern of generous giving to the University to support and enhance quality in all its academic endeavors;
- Develop the active participation of alumni and friends to serve the institution through close association with the president and University community;
- Recognize those whose generosity serves the welfare and advancement of Purdue; and
- Educate all constituents on the importance of philanthropy at Purdue.
Thank you to all Council members for maintaining these special goals!
