Introducing the Bechtel Center to Your Students

Introduction Slideshow

Student Ambassador

With sufficient notice, at least two weeks, the Bechtel Center can coordinate with Purdue faculty to have a Peer Mentor act as a guest speaker for any class to introduce the Center and all of its available resources, answer questions, and more!

Contact bechtelidc@purdue.edu for more information or to begin coordinating a Peer Mentor visit.

Working with the Bechtel Center

Important Disclaimers
  • We reserve the right to turn away any and all projects as we see fit.
    • If a project can be expected to drastically strain the resources of the Bechtel Center whether it be a large need for Peer Mentors, a large class with more people than the Center has time to help, etc. it may be turned down to maintain fair access to all students.
  • Course projects will not be prioritized over any other project.
    • To maintain fair access, all projects, reservations, consultations, etc. will be managed on an as-received basis and will not be prioritized over one another for any reason.
  • Course projects are not guaranteed to be completed by a certain deadline.
    • As we endeavor to provide fair access, flexibility and responsiveness to all Purdue students, there may be intervals during the semester where we will be heavily scheduled so a lead time of several weeks is not uncommon. 
  • Communicate with the Bechtel Center at least one month before sending an entire class to work with us on an assigned project.
    • Ample warning should be given in order to best prepare the Center for what may be a sudden influx of students.
    • Depending on the project, the center may need to prepare ahead of time or the students may need certain information for us to help them as best we can. 
  • Communicate with the Bechtel Center every semester if the project in question will be repeated.
