Welcome to the Office of Institutional Advancement

Purdue University Calumet’s Office of Institutional Advancement supports the University’s educational mission, vision, needs and strategic plan by advancing and strengthening relationships with alumni, parents, friends, trustees, students, faculty, staff, governmental officials and other concerned leaders. This is accomplished through a program of print, audio, video, electronic, oral and written communication, as well as personal visitation, special events and leadership opportunities, including service on the Alumni Board of Governors and various advisory and event committees. The Office of Advancement is composed of three functional units: Advancement (development and fundraising), Alumni Relations and Marketing & Communications.

The Office is headed by Vice Chancellor Regina Biddings-Muro.
