Purdue Community Support
Assuring that 60 honor students from various minority serving Institutions and Universities have a positive and informative visit is no small task. A great deal of organizational effort goes in to the M-HBI Visitation Program each year. Each school and many departments help by setting up meetings with faculty, students and staff for the visiting students, conducting tours of campus, laboratories, libraries and the Greater Lafayette community. This broad-based effort has resulted in a sense of cooperation and goodwill as the entire Purdue community seeks to help the visiting students get a realistic picture of the many opportunities available to them should they elect to pursue graduate study at Purdue.
The funding needed to implement and continue the program has been provided by the President's Office and each of the academic deans.
