BoilerMentor Program

The Division of Diversity and Inclusion launched the BoilerMentor program in an effort to ease the transition of students to Purdue. The program connects students from diverse backgrounds to resources and leadership development opportunities across campus that will support academic success and social inclusion through a peer mentor experience. BoilerMentors assist the Emerging Leaders Scholars and other interested students to create an inclusive network that involves upperclassmen and graduate students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Please complete a short survey to add to the quality of the BoilerMentor Program. Also, visit the BoilerMentor program site to discover even more information.

“The BoilerMentor program rewarded me with the possibility to meet wonderful people, connect with staff, learn about more student resources and get more involved on campus, all while making a positive impact on people I would have not met otherwise".


“My mentor and I were almost the same person as a freshman; he was an African American student from out of state majoring in Chemical Engineering who had also completed the same Academic Boot Camp Program as me. Because of our similarities, he was able to help me academically as well as guide me professionally. I have him to thank for helping me make the dean's list first semester and land my co-op with Kimberly-Clark”.
