Good food, good music, good times at Mastodon Family Picnic
We believe in community. We believe in it so much that community engagement is one of the pillars of the Purdue Fort Wayne strategic plan. Because of this belief, we strive to develop partnerships that matter, that drive growth. We want to encourage our youth, make significant impact alongside local businesses, and explore all the possibilities that a thriving community can provide.
“The institution plays a vital role in the region and beyond, and engaging with our community will continue to be an important part of our future success.”
—Kim Grannan, Chief of Staff to the Chancellor and Community Relations Officer
