Thursday, November 7, 2019* (See your city for local start times)

In 1962, Herman and Ellnora Krannert donated $2.73 million to establish the Krannert Graduate School of Industrial Administration. We gather on the first Thursday of November and raise a glass to honor the Krannerts, and celebrate being members of the School of Management alumni family.   
Held in 16 locations around the world in 2018, we look forward to expanding the Krannert Global Toast even further this year! If you are interested in hosting a Toast in your own city, contact Krannert Alumni Relations at for details! It is a fun and easy way to reconnect with your fellow Boilermakers!

Share your toast with the world! #KrannertGlobalToast
