International Networks

No matter when you earned your Purdue degree or where you live in the world, you’re forever part of the accomplished Boilermaker community. Your passion and your participation is the strength of our community.

Wherever you live or travel, the Purdue for Life Foundation makes it easy for you to connect with fellow alumni, build professional relationships, attend special events, and recruit local students.

Launch a Purdue Alumni International Network

Don’t see your location listed? We’re always pleased when alumni dedicate the leadership required to start a network or to keep one going strong. A Purdue Alumni International Network exists to provide a link between Purdue University and its former students and friends. An international network is encouraged to:

  • Provide networking opportunities for international Purdue alumni
  • Communicate with local alumni and share Purdue news and updates
  • Provide the foundation with contact information for Purdue alumni and friends in your area
  • Inform the foundation of planned activities and post-event details (e.g., photos or attendee names)
  • Assist the University by encouraging recruitment of local students for Purdue’s undergraduate and graduate programs
  • Share opportunities for collaboration with Purdue University
  • Connect with Purdue visitors in your area (e.g., faculty-led study abroad programs)
  • Enhance the image of Purdue University and its alumni


Overall, our international networks help alumni residing abroad sustain an emotional bond with their alma mater by keeping alumni connected to each other and Purdue. To start or join a network outside the U.S., please complete our interest form.
