Professional Practice Hall of Fame

The Professional Practice Hall of Fame (formerly Cooperative Education Hall of Fame) was created in 2010 to recognize individuals who have had a significant influence on our Professional Practice Programs, as well as alumni of our programs that have demonstrated unparalleled excellence in their field to serve as shining ambassadors of the opportunities that experiential education grants. Individuals are nominated and approved by the Professional Practice Advisory Council, a group of Purdue faculty that aid in the oversight and implementation of our Professional Practice Programs across campus.

Congratulations to the 2023 Professional Practice Hall of Fame inductees!
