PROMISE Program 

Purdue's Recruitment of Minorities Interested in the Schools of Engineering (PROMISE) program was established in 1975. PROMISE, sponsored by the Minority Engineering Program, is an exciting two-day event that encourages high school seniors from underrepresented communities to apply to Purdue. This agenda includes campus tours, residential hall tours, engaging meals with faculty and students, engineering projects, exposure to the engineering curriculum, and social activities.
