Happy Birthday to Abe Lincoln, who signed the Morrill Act of 1862 allowing for the creation of institutions of higher learning. Purdue University was founded seven years later as a land-grant college.

Someo­ne You Love: The HPV Epide­mic
February 26, 2016 | 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM, Fowler Hall

Discovery Park's Cancer Prevention Internship Program is partnering with Lafayette's YMCA Women's Cancer Program to show the documentary "Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic" on February 26th from 6-9 pm in Fowler Hall.

The Human Papilloma Virus HPV may be the most widespread, misunderstood and potentially dangerous epidemic that most people hardly know anything about. 80 percent of all people under 50 years of age will have a strain of the virus at some point in their lives and most will not even realize they have it. Cervical cancer is almost exclusively caused by HPV and it is the 2nd leading cancer in women. Worldwide, cervical cancer kills over 250,000 women every year. Meet five unforgettable women whose lives have been changed forever and even interrupted by this deadly virus. http://bit.ly/1QXZmNa

Purdue University has been selected as a partner with the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders to host 25 of Africa's emerging entrepreneurs for an academic and leadership institute this summer.

Beginning in mid-June, Purdue will host the African business and entrepreneurship leaders for a six-week academic and leadership institute based in Discovery Park, the U.S. Department of State and the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) announced Wednesday (Feb. 10).

The Mandela Washington Fellowship - the flagship program of President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative launched in 2014 - empowers young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, networking, professional opportunities and support for activities in their communities.

"During their time at Purdue, these bright and motivated entrepreneurs from Africa will learn, through academic coursework and networking, how to turn their knowledge into economic and social value that will enable them to change lives around the world and in their own communities," says Suresh Garimella, Purdue executive vice president for research and partnerships. http://bit.ly/20VYz42
