Crowdfund resources to support our efforts
Alumni and friends can help ensure a safe environment for students, faculty and staff by supporting the Protect Purdue Initiative Fund.
Partner across the Greater Lafayette community to collectively advance safety efforts, particularly for students living and engaging in activities off campus
We will strive to partner with community leaders, business owners, and operators and property developers to promote healthy practices in off-campus environments, including apartments and establishments that students frequent.
- Recognizing that Purdue has a responsibility to support the health and safety of the Greater Lafayette community, we will engage with a broad range of stakeholders to encourage the adoption of the tenets of the Protect Purdue Plan — which will likely be more stringent than those experienced or witnessed within the outside community — beyond the borders of our campus.
- We will collaborate and partner with leaders of the West Lafayette, Lafayette and Tippecanoe County communities on ways to create a healthy and safe environment that protects Purdue and our neighbors.
- For example, Purdue University collaborated with West Lafayette, Lafayette and Tippecanoe County leaders to craft Protect Greater Lafayette partner and individual pledges, asking the community to voluntarily join the University’s campus-wide commitment to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
- Additionally, with more than 60% of our students living off campus, we work with landlords to support the safety of our students living off-campus and we will expect our off-campus students to adhere to the tenets of the Protect Purdue Pledge at all times.
- As home to one of the nation’s largest fraternity, sorority and cooperative communities — with roughly 20% of our undergraduates belonging to one of these organizations — we are working with students and where possible, advisory committees and national organizations to promote safe practices in these congregate living facilities.
