About the Purdue Army ROTC Alumni Network
To fulfill its mission of connecting Purdue Army ROTC alumni and strengthening their bond to Purdue, the Purdue Army ROTC Alumni Network will focus on these objectives:
- Networking: Develop a network of Purdue Army ROTC alumni aiming to grow a relationship between alumni and the university.
- Professional development: Create a platform and opportunities where professional Purdue Army ROTC alumni can come together to support one another, provide useful resources, and create opportunities for the development and enhancement of professional skills.
This network was established in 2021. Original members were driven by an interest in initiating a relationship with Purdue Army ROTC alumni, the Boiler Battalion, and the university.
The mission of PARAN is to connect Purdue Army ROTC alumni, those actively serving, veterans, and former classmates in an interlaced network of professionals committed to connecting, coaching, teaching, and mentoring each other and the next generation of leaders. Purdue Army ROTC alumni include many distinguished individuals around the world who have led in the military, in business, and in their communities.
PARAN will be a leadership-driven group committed to protecting a society that celebrates all Americans, including those from all communities protected by the blanket of freedom our alumni have dedicated and, in some cases, scarified their lives for. PARAN exists solely to serve as a foundation to develop former, current, and future leaders.
