Protect Purdue Initiative


This fall semester, and perhaps every one that follows it, will be different because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Special preparations and perhaps radical changes in traditional practices will be required for the protection of all of our students, faculty, and staff.

At Purdue, our mission is to prepare tomorrow’s problem-solvers and cultivate the persistence and determination that overcoming adversity demands. This fall, Boilermakers will demonstrate both qualities by making the smart changes needed to produce a high-value education in an optimally safe environment.

We ask for your support to ensure we are equipped to handle in-person classes when students return. All funds raised will offset costs incurred by the University and will benefit the areas of greatest need across campus, equipping Purdue’s leaders to move nimbly to address a range of anticipated and unanticipated needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Together, we will protect Purdue and take the next step toward building a better world.
