Welcome to the WELink Program

WELink

The Personal Connection Program was formed by Purdue University, in 1991, through the funding from a three-year grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and has subsequently relied on corporate sponsorship. The program was renamed WELink, in 2012, to emphasize the program's focus on connecting with prospective women engineering students. The WELink Leadership Team, made up of undergraduate engineering students, aims to reach out to prospective female engineering students in high school and to serve as their connection to Purdue. WELink acts as their personal link to Purdue University with two main focuses:

  1. To increase the number of exceptional female students who consider engineering as a profession
  2. To increase the number of exceptional female students who enroll in engineering

WELink portrays the academic and social experiences associated with the exciting and opportunity filled engineering program Purdue offers. WELink focuses on activities that help young women interested in engineering learn more about life as a female engineering student at Purdue by discussing dorm life, typical classes for engineering students, and other awesome experiences Purdue students have.
