Welcome to Purdue North Central!
Welcome to the Purdue University North Central (PNC) website! I hope you will take the time to explore this site and learn about PNC. As a PNC student you will join the thousands of students who are registered at the various Purdue University campuses. Purdue is recognized throughout the world for its excellence.
Once you have learned more about our campus, I urge you to come to campus for a visit. The Admissions Office can arrange for your personal tour whether you are a prospective student or parent or just want to learn more about PNC. I encourage you to come to our beautiful 268 acre campus, meet our faculty and staff and see first-hand that our campus presents a safe, comfortable learning environment.
We also welcome members of the community to PNC. We offer a self-guided Odyssey Contemporary Sculpture tour, walking and fitness trails, and a garden dedicated to the flowering plants mentioned in plays and sonnets by William Shakespeare. PNC’s brand new Disc Golf Course is open and free to the public.
Our campus is home to the North Central Veterinary Emergency Center, an innovative public-private partnership between PNC, the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine and a group of area veterinarians who provide emergency veterinary care. This is just one way that Purdue North Central partners with our surrounding communities.
PNC has had tremendous growth in the past several years – growth in head count and credit hours and growth in academic programs. We now offer 22 baccalaureate programs as well as a Master of Business Administration degree. Our Campus Master Plan will guide the campus' expansion and development over the next several years and will continue to make PNC a thriving and exciting place for our students and the community alike.
With more than 5,000 students and over 11,000 alumni, PNC is a vital component to our service region in LaPorte, Porter, Starke and many other surrounding counties as well as southwest lower Michigan. I hope you will take advantage of all that we have to offer. - Chancellor James B. Dworkin
