Distinguished Science Alumni

Awards are given to alumni whose work and achievements have made a significant difference in our communities and lives. We are very proud to claim them as part of the Purdue Science family, and we thank them for the valuable contributions they continue to make to our college, the University, and our world.

The College of Science has launched its 2008–2014 strategic plan with key themes including launching tomorrow’s leaders, discovery with delivery, meeting global challenges, and creating diverse communities for excellence. In so many ways, our distinguished alumni embody these goals and live the college’s mission. Their work and accomplishments are “real world” proof that a Purdue degree in science can lead to professional success and also help to solve some of the enormous challenges facing modern society. They are inspirational role models for us all.
