Purdue Identities Project Nobody should have to be invisible. #BeSeen

What is the Purdue Identities Project (PIP)?

The Purdue Identities Project (PIP) is one of nine Diversity Transformation Award DTA recipients aimed at increasing and retaining diversity on campus. PIP is a broad inclusion initiative geared at increasing awareness and resources for campus diversity. With a special focus on hidden diversity – invisible identities – or social identities that might not be known until they are disclosed, PIP is helping to promote a campus climate where everyone feels included, safe, and acknowledged, whether or not their identities are known to others.

PIP’s three activity branches include:

PIP is working closely with faculty to develop curriculum modules that can be used within current diversity, inclusion, and ethics classes, in training courses, or developed into new stand-alone classes. 
PIP has assessed the campus community to determine the spread of resources available to student, staff, and faculty in regards to identity-related issues. Soon, the campus will have access to a searchable database that will connect users to the various offices, individuals, or organizations across Purdue that can handle any of the many issues encountered while at Purdue. From depression, to rent problems, to issues with a supervisor, PIP’s resource database will connect the campus to updated information to meet a variety of needs.
Branded "Boiler Identities", this print and media campaign is designed to bring to light the often hidden diversity of Purdue’s campus. The campaign will also highlight the new PIP resources and PIP-certified organizations across campus.
