Meet Taylor Brodner, information systems specialist

Taylor Brodner’s career at Purdue has been a bit like dominoes falling into place. She might never have applied to Purdue’s Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Effectiveness (OIRAE) without discovering her passion for data. She likely would not have found that passion without changing majors from engineering to industrial management, per the support of a Purdue Promise coach her sophomore year.
