The Office of Globalization acknowledges the traditional homelands of the Indigenous People which Purdue University is built upon. We honor and appreciate the Bodéwadmik (Potawatomi), Lenape (Delaware), Myaamia (Miami), and Shawnee People who are the original Indigenous caretakers.

Czech Technical University- Prague

"There's a reason why people who come back from studying abroad talk about it in almost every conversation they can. I believe my time in the Czech Republic put me outside my comfort zone and forced me to learn my strengths and weaknesses. Having classes with students from all over the world exposes you to different cultures and societies which in return allows you to share your experiences living in the US. I think choosing to go abroad was one of the best decisions I've made in my college career."
