The Office of Global Partnerships is focused on strengthening relationships to advance innovation, research, education and commercialization efforts by linking companies, governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, domestic and international universities, and alumni and friends to Purdue.
We work collaboratively with thousands of schools, companies, foundations, and universities worldwide. These working relationships range from transactional associations to bilateral strategic partnerships. The effectiveness in furthering Purdue's mission of discovery, learning, and engagement correlates directly with the vitality of these partnerships.
International experiences connect students, scholars, and emerging leaders around the world, enabling them to collaborate and tackle today's grand challenges like conflict resolution, food security, and climate change. Through international education, students cross socio-economic, cultural, political, religious, and geographic borders and learn to work in a global job market. The Office of Global Partnerships (OGP) oversees global engagement university wide a well as Purdue's student mobility initiatives in the Office of International Programs. OGP aims to foster and coordinate campus-wide partnership initiatives and programs, in close collaboration with Colleges, Departments, and Centers, to advance the University's vision and strategic goals.
OGP is an advocate for campus internationalization, and works to find synergies throughout the Purdue community, convene stakeholders and cultivate deeper, more robust and sustainable global programs and partnerships.
OGP plays a key role in shaping the University's international agreements. For a list of current global partnerships, visit: https://globalpartners.purdue.edu/international-agreements/global-linkages/
