Office of Graduate Diversity Initiatives

The Graduate School is committed to enhancing the experience of all students from diverse backgrounds. Our unique programs and initiatives ensure Purdue is a welcoming campus where our graduate students can excel — both academically and personally.

We want to offer students innovative programs and opportunities that enable them to thrive in a diverse, global environment. We focus on increasing the enrollment and retention of underrepresented graduate students at Purdue.

The Office of Graduate Diversity Initiatives strives to support the University's values to help create a diverse, respectful and inclusive environment for all students and staff we serve. Our mission is to provide a safe space to all who enter our door.
