Help Purdue and the College of Science remain Ever
True in field-changing research, preparing the next
generation of scientific leaders and creating solutions
for the world’s problems, both now and upcoming.
Ever True is the rallying cry behind a new fundraising campaign announced Oct. 9 by Purdue President
Mitch Daniels. The campaign’s roots extend back to
2012 but the goal of $2.019 billion to be raised by 2019,
the year of Purdue’s 150th anniversary, has been set.
Daniels said the campaign “will elevate our
University’s reputation for research excellence and
intellectual achievement in a new era of accountability
in higher education.”
The campaign is a call to action to protect and
extend Purdue’s noble, land-grant assignment.
Gifts in support of the campaign will help the
College of Science keep investing in well-rounded individuals, giving them opportunities to succeed both inside
and outside the classroom. We encourage our students
to learn beyond the classroom through programs that
enhance their potential in the job market, such as volunteer work, internships, job shadowing and study
abroad programs. This fall, the College of Science
welcomed the largest first-year class in years at well
over 1,000. There is significant momentum.
Since the Department of Chemistry produced
Purdue’s first graduate — John Bradford Harper — in
1875, the College of Science faculty and students have
created a legacy that has changed — and will continue
to change — the world.

PURDUE HAS BEEN “EVER TRUE” FOR ALMOST
THE GOAL: $2.019 BILLION RAISED BY 2019.
College of Science alumnae have
formed a giving circle to create
funding in support of Purdue
Science while encouraging women
as philanthropic leaders.
Giving circle members are
Purdue Science alumnae, parents
and friends who recognize that
women as donors have the capability of making a tremendous impact
on the College of Science, its students, faculty and staff. This impact
grows exponentially when the
contributions from women are
united in support of the college and
directed through a collective voice.
To date, several student groups
have benefited from Science Women
for Purdue Giving Circle funding,
including the Science Diversity
Office, Women in Physics, Iota
Sigma Pi, the first ever Chemistry
Day and a collaborative outreach by
the College of Science with the
College of Education to help bring
science opportunities to students
with mild to moderate disabilities.
