The Purdue Army ROTC Alumni Network (PARAN) 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 any and 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.
