The Purdue Calumet ‘Big 4’

Purdue Calumet has identified four key projects to advance through fundraising partnerships. These projects will enable the university to reach out in distinctive ways to advance northwest Indiana as its Hometown University. Here is our “Big 4” project list—for which we invite participation from friends on and off campus:

  • Purdue Calumet Commercialization Center—a venue for bringing innovative ideas to market as a catalyst for economic development and technology transfer;
  • Dowling Park Sports Complex—soccer, baseball, softball and tennis facilities for attracting top student-athletes to our growing, intercollegiate athletics program;
  • Academic Scholarships—for enabling more of the best & brightest students to pursue a Purdue education on our campus.
  • Downtown Towle Theater—coordinating with Hammond friends and others to enable more performing arts and other cultural opportunities.
