Beginning an International Alumni Network

Thank you for your interest in building a network of alumni! We have networks in many locations around the world. 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 Purdue Alumni Association with contact information for Purdue alumni and friends in your area
  • Inform the Purdue Alumni Association 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 US, please complete our interest form.
