Corinne Alexander Spirit of the Land Grant Mission Award
The Corinne Alexander Spirit of the Land-Grant Mission Award recognizes a faculty member in the Purdue University Colleges of Agriculture, Health and Human Sciences, or Veterinary Medicine for excellence in integrating and promoting our core missions of discovery, engagement, and learning.
The Award was established in 2008, and in 2016 was named in honor of the late Dr. Corinne Alexander, a professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics, who excelled in all three missions of teaching, research and extension. Corinne's impact on our College went far beyond her students, her audiences, and her papers. She was a gifted teacher, an intensely curious and productive scholar, and she had a true gift for working with our stakeholders and the broader public, both in the U.S. and around the world.
The award is presented annually to celebrate a faculty member who has successfully developed an integrated, comprehensive program that benefits agriculture, health and human sciences, or veterinary medicine nationally and/or internationally and whose work truly exemplifies the spirit of the land-grant mission.
