Two core values guide the work of our team:
We understand we serve an organization that is bigger than any individual and that exists for the benefit of Purdue. Our collective purpose is to prioritize the long-term needs and strengthen the reputation of the university as we help people who love Purdue stay connected, get involved, and give back.
We work hard together to create wins for Purdue, understanding that any success is everyone’s success. We’re resilient when we face resistance, and we’re persistent in the pursuit of the next giant leap. We learn from our missteps, we prevail in the face of adversity, and we’re guided by G.R.I.T.—growth, responsibility, investment, and teamwork—on our path to achieving excellence.
The Purdue for Life Foundation was created in 2020 by uniting the Purdue Alumni Association and the University Development Office. Check out our annual impact report and watch the videos below to learn more about the impact of our collective efforts.
