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, near or far, 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 an International Alumni Network

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

  • Provide networking opportunities for Purdue international 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 (i.e. photos, attendees, etc.)
  • 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 (i.e. faculty-led study abroad) in your area
  • Enhance the image of Purdue University and its alumni

Overall, our international networks help alumni residing abroad to 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.
