Ever True - The Campaign for Purdue University 

College selects goals for "Ever True" campaign

​Published November 6, 2015

The College of Agriculture has identified three broad goals for its part of "Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University," the largest fundraising effort in the university's history.

The goals involve engaging College of Agriculture students in a world-class academic curriculum and transformational co-curricular experiences; ensuring that faculty and staff have the resources to achieve their boldest aspirations in the classroom, field and laboratory; and improving its facilities—both on campus and across the state—so they support world-leading science and education programs.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels announced the campaign in October. It continues through June 30, 2019, concluding in the university's 150th anniversary year. The title of the campaign comes from the lyrics of "Hail Purdue!" and speaks to the loyalty and commitment the Boilermaker family has long demonstrated.

In the College of Agriculture, private gifts are essential to the success of our education, research and Extension missions, says Jay Akridge, Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue Agriculture.

"The support our donors have provided in the past has helped us pursue scholarships, faculty support and facility investments that have been crucial to building the global reputation for excellence we hold," Akridge said. "As we look to the future, it will take continued investment from our alumni and friends if we are to help our students, faculty and staff realize their aspirations to help build a better agriculture, Indiana, nation and world."
