Corporate Partnerships

Purdue University is a vast laboratory for discovery. The university is known not only for science, technology, engineering, and math programs, but also for our imagination, ingenuity, and innovation. It’s a place where those who seek an education come to make their ideas real — especially when those transformative discoveries lead to scientific, technological, social, or humanitarian impact.

Purdue Partners is a proactive, university-wide mindset, as well as the name for the network of faculty and staff working in concert to increase the impact, scale, and sustainability of our strategic partnerships.  To fulfill this mission requires configuring Purdue’s corporate–facing academic persona as a “one-stop shop” for corporations looking to bring interdisciplinary thinking to grand challenge problems and to connect with top talent.
