A message from the Vice Chancellor

Welcome to Enrollment Management and Student Affairs at Purdue University Calumet!

Carmen Panlilio, Ph.D.
Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs

The Enrollment Management and Student Affairs offices at Purdue Calumet are focused and dedicated to helping students become the leaders and great thinkers of the future.  Working with the academic offices and departments at Purdue University Calumet, our goal is to enrich the lives of our students and provide opportunities for them to meet their personal, educational and professional goals as well as to contribute and influence their communities — locally, regionally and globally.

The many programs and departments in the division focus on providing our students and their families with the services that help them begin their Purdue Calumet experience, and as they grow and develop through their college years. We encourage students to participate in the many educational, cultural, recreational and social programs available on campus, as these can only enrich their college experience.  We provide them with the health and wellness programs as well as support services that help them stay healthy and focused on success. The University offers modern apartment style housing conveniently located adjacent to the Fitness and Recreation Center.  Students are encouraged to attend and support their Peregrine peers in any of the 12 men’s and women’s sports team events.  All these, in addition to the excellent academic programs at Purdue University Calumet, make it a destination of choice for students in Northwest Indiana, the region and the world.

Pending the approval of the Higher Learning Commission, Purdue University Northwest (PNW) will be established through the unification of Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University North Central.  Rest assured that all the services and support provided to students at both campuses will continue and even expand.  We will leverage the combined resources, experience and focus of the staff from both campuses to serve students at both sites of the future Purdue University Northwest.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site, and we hope to meet you soon on our campus.

Best,
Carmen Panlilio, Ph.D.
