In 2021-2022, Purdue University Northwest will be celebrating our proud history—and ‘Roaring Ahead' toward an even-better future.
The year ahead marks the fifth anniversary of the establishment of Purdue Northwest and the 75th anniversaries of our legacy institutions, Purdue Calumet and Purdue North Central.
We’ll be celebrating with a yearlong tribute, “Roaring Ahead,” that will focus on the many ways Purdue Northwest transforms students’ lives and our metropolitan region, driving engagement and pushing the boundaries of innovation.
PNW will plan several university-wide events open to the entire community. More importantly, individual units, departments and colleges are encouraged to plan their own events to look to our future while celebrating our history.
For approved celebration events, please submit this form for all marketing requests and approvals of use of the Roaring Ahead brand and mark.
