A Community Of Togetherness

The Purdue for Life Foundation is excited to present the inaugural Purdue Day of Unity, a free event that offers both in-person and virtual interaction. It is designed to help us learn and understand various nuances of cultural identity by hearing authentic stories from our alumni while also highlighting ways you can stay connected, get involved, and give back with our affinity networks and cultural centers. Our goal is to cultivate a community of unity, growth, and continued support.

Because we want to connect with as many people as possible, we are offering both in-person and virtual engagement options.

6-7 PM

Est

Reception at the Dick and Sandy Dauch Alumni Center on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. Seating is limited. Guests are encouraged to stay for the screening of the virtual main event.

7-8 PM

Est

Virtual main event, including a keynote by Dr. John Gates, vice provost for diversity and inclusion at Purdue, followed by presentations by storytellers who represent the diversity of our alumni. Christopher Munt, director of inclusive excellence at Purdue’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, will moderate the event.

Each of our storytellers is an alumni volunteer who is willing to share their story and stimulate thoughts of how our experiences at Purdue can inspire others to get involved and give back. Topics may include cultural identity, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, social status, religion/ideology and the various ways alumni now are choosing to stay connected, get involved, and give back to Purdue.

Please be on the lookout for additional diversity, inclusion, and belonging programming and online storytelling sessions throughout the year.
