Co-Op Hall of Fame

The Cooperative Education Hall of Fame was created in 2010 to recognize individuals who have had a significant influence on our Professional Practice Programs, as well as alumni of our programs who have demonstrated unparalleled excellence in their field. These individuals represent the very best that co-op has to offer, be it through mentoring co-op students or serving as a prime example of the opportunities that cooperative education has to offer. Individuals are nominated and approved by the Professional Practice Advisory Council, a group of Purdue faculty that aid in the oversight and implementation of the Professional Practice Programs across campus.
