150 Alumni Spotlight

We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our over 18,000 alumni. Some became teachers. Some became counselors. Some became educational technology experts. And some became principals, superintendents, professors and more! As part of the celebration of Purdue University’s sesquicentennial and the College of Education’s 30th anniversary, we collected alumni updates from all around the globe! Hover/click on each photo to read about how Purdue and the College of Education helped them get to where they are today.
