Community. “A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.”
That’s us. We come from different places, have different skills and experiences. But we are a community or a collection of communities. Some communities are based on who we are, what we do, what we like, what we know, where we live, or what we studied.
For organization’s sake, we identify communities in two broad categories: Clubs and Networks.
Clubs are almost always geographically organized and connected. Purdue alumni living in Houston or Indianapolis, Chicago or San Francisco. We have hundreds of clubs — probably one near you. Clubs plan events through the year for fun, service and to support future Purdue Alumni through scholarship programs.
Networks are typically organized around something other than geography. Our current list of alumni networks includes:
- Black Alumni
- Latino Alumni
- LGBTQ+ Alumni
- Asian American Alumni
- International Council of Purdue Women
- Band and Orchestra
- Grand Prix
- BGR Leaders
- Purdue Student Union Board
- Purdue Engineering Student Council
- Trap & Skeet
- Honors College Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK)
Each network exists for its own purpose and pursues activities valued by the network members. Networks often work to improve opportunities for current students.
Our clubs and networks are the embodiment of Purdue’s global impact. Your membership in the Purdue Alumni Association not only gets you access to join these groups, but to lead. To bring your passion, expertise, and vision to life.
