Biographical or Historical Information

International Programs in Agriculture (IPIA) was started in 1962 to manage Purdue’s outreach program in Brazil.  A cooperative training program was established four years earlier between Purdue University and twelve agricultural colleges and eight veterinary schools in Brazil as part of the International Cooperation Administration.  Three members of the agricultural staff and three home economics specialists left for Brazil in 1958 to “assist in training teachers and conducting extension short courses for agricultural personnel.” The Purdue-Brazil Project, as it was known, was designed to strengthen educational opportunities in Brazil through the guidance of Purdue agricultural staff, including specialists in agricultural sciences, home economics, and forestry.  Study abroad was added to IPIA in the 1980s.  By 2010, the College of Agriculture’s globalization efforts – encompassing research, education, and engagement activities – extended to over 60 countries.
