Fish Fry 2023



Come home to the 2023 Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry - right here in Tippecanoe County! 

This year our president-elect, Mung Chiang, will be our featured speaker. Dr. Chiang has most recently been the John A. Edwardson Dean of Engineering and Executive Vice President for Strategic Initiatives at Purdue. During Chiang's five years at Purdue, he has led his college to its highest rankings ever, even as it has grown dramatically at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He spent 2020 as scientific and technology advisor to the U.S. secretary of state on a prestigious Intergovernmental Personnel Act appointment. He came to Purdue from Princeton University, where in his role as the Arthur LeGrand Professor of Electrical Engineering, he was recognized for a number of innovations in teaching and was the first chairman of Princeton's Entrepreneurial Council. 

Mung will have a conversation with Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture, Karen Plaut. By the time the Fish Fry occurs, he will have been on the job for a month. He has spent a lot of time traveling the state to get to know our stakeholders and Purdue Extension a little better. It will be a great time getting to know him and learning about the priorities he envisions for the future of Purdue. 

There's even something for future Boilermakers! Our childcare is getting an upgrade and is now the Ag Adventures Club. It's still free for those who sign up, and features lessons in soil science, STEM building projects, and the Columbian Park Zoomobile.

Be sure to come early, doors open at 9:30am, to visit Purdue Ag Avenue presented by Can-Am, program begins at 11 am.
