Coach Brohm

Join the Polytechnic Institute at Purdue University for our third annual Innovation Summit. We will spotlight Purdue’s un-siloed, crossover approach to teaching and learning, and feature faculty from the Polytechnic Institute, College of Engineering and Krannert School of Management.

Our keynote speaker will be Jeff Brohm, head football coach at Purdue University. Coach Brohm’s innovation and creativity brought new energy to the football team and student body, propelling the team from four losing seasons and half-empty stadiums to sell-out crowds and winning a bowl game. And that was just his first year on the job.

Presented by Purdue Polytechnic Institute
