Celebrating the Next Giant Leap: The Purdue Brand Portfolio

2022 Marketing and Communications Impact Report

In our pursuit to tell the best stories of Purdue’s giant leaps in 2022, we went bigger and bolder than ever before.

And others took notice. For the second year in a row, Fast Company named Purdue a Brand That Matters, alongside some of the world’s most innovative companies — LinkedIn, American Express, Nike and more. Once again, we were the only university to make the list and one of 13 brands to make the list for the second year in a row. 

2022 was also a year of celebrating the portfolio. We worked to amplify the entire Purdue brand, including our flagship West Lafayette campus, Purdue Global and Purdue Polytechnic High Schools.

As we position, promote and protect the Purdue portfolio, the university continues exponentially onward, achieving record enrollment and demand — paving the way for continued excellence at scale.
