Every year the College of Liberal Arts and the Purdue Alumni Association recognize Liberal Arts alumni and students who push the boundaries of creativity, generate ideas that propel economic growth, and advance change.
Since 1986, the Distinguished Alumni Award has recognized alumni who are change agents in their communities as teachers, researchers, business leaders, visionaries, advocates, artists, and innovators.
The Emerging Voice Award recognizes young alumni who have excelled in their careers and proven to be productive, engaged members of society.
