Value & affordability—here!

How much will students and their families pay to earn a million dollars?

That is a noteworthy question given that baccalaureate-degreed individuals over the course of their professional lives average $1 million more in earnings than those who have no more than a high school diploma.

Dear Friends,

Funding from the state and the tuition/fees our students pay provide the revenue our campus needs to operate day-to-day.

But for Purdue Calumet to step up and take advantage of wonderful opportunities to make a positive impact, we must identify additional financial sources.

Peregrine sports

Basketball teams step up

The Purdue Calumet women finished 21-10 this season, 17-5 in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference good for 2nd place, and ranked 13th nationally in NAIA II. The Peregrines also competed in the NAIA national tournament. Likewise, a strong second half season propelled the Peregrine men to an 18-14 record, the most victories since 2003-04.

Flying high…

Commercialization Center looming

Development of a Purdue Calumet Commercialization Center near campus is what prompted the university’s recent $2 million purchase of the 18,000 square feet Kaplan building on Indianapolis Boulevard. The center will provide laboratory space for enabling faculty, students and community members to develop and bring new product ideas to market. Another $2 million for renovation and furnishing costs are needed from private donors.
