Rotaract at Purdue University Northwest

Members of the Michigan City and LaPorte Rotary clubs held a meeting with Purdue University Northwest (PNW), Westville Campus, to discuss the possibility of starting a new Rotaract club. Dr. Lawrence Hamer, Dean of the College of Business and Matthew Wells, Executive Director of Strategic Partnerships, Engagement and Legislative Liaison were on the call from PNW. The meeting went very well, and we all agreed to move forward. This is a great opportunity to grow Rotary!

PNW will begin determining which of their staff and faculty members will be involved. We agreed to begin developing a list of PNW students that have a Rotary connection This is where we need help from you.

Do you have a relative or friend of the family that is a student at PNW? Please include incoming Freshman for the 2021-2022 school year. At this point we are asking for names only. 

Once you have the name(s), email them to me and I will create a list to share with PNW.  We will ensure each student is invited to one of the call-out meetings later this year and keep everyone updated on the progress of the club.
