Women for Purdue (WFP) was founded in 2003 to encourage and celebrate leadership in giving to Purdue. Their educational programs strive to cultivate future generations of volunteers and philanthropists for the University and for their communities.

In August, 2008, the Pharmacy Women for Purdue (PWFP) program was established as an extension of Women for Purdue to provide an opportunity for Pharmacy alumni to support programs that advance pharmacy careers and celebrate the contributions that alumni of the College have made, inside and outside of Purdue. 

With input from alumni and current students in the College of Pharmacy, steering committee members recommended that the primary focus of the group would be fostering interaction between current students and alumni. Suggested topics included mentoring, learning about diverse career paths, professional development, the transition from student to working professional, balancing career and family, networking, career advancement, standing out in the field as a young professional, and communication skills.

If you are a Pharmacy Alum and would like more information about Pharmacy Women for Purdue, or if you have suggestions for other possible events or topics of interest for the group, please contact Erin VanEmon, Manager of Alumni Relations and Special Events, at or (756) 494-2632.
