Presidential Lecture Series


Purdue University is proud to continue the Presidential Lecture Series (PLS) during the fall semester. Launched in 2014, the Presidential Lecture Series aims to engage Purdue students and the broader community with inspiring ideas, courageous leadership, and models of civic engagement and civil discourse. 

For the fall 2021 semester, the hour-long discussions will be moderated by President Daniels, and will be held at various on-campus locations and will be free and open to the public. The events will also be available via a livestream on Purdue’s YouTube channel. 


For the most effective promotion, this content package provides promotional assets for the lecture series itself as well as event-specific assets. Assets will be added to the package as more events are added to the calendar. However, the series graphics (those noting “Presidential Lecture Series”) are evergreen and can be used in general promotion of the lecture series, no matter the event.  


 Purdue Marketing and Communications is providing the following assets for campus communicators and recruiters to use on their own channels in promotion of the series and events:  

  • Social media graphics 
  • Suggested social media language
  • Flyer
  • Digital Sign 


When linking to Purdue websites from social media platforms or emails, it is recommended that UTM parameters be added to the URL in order to provide reporting on the activity. Please use the following custom URL when promoting the event:
