Jarvis Jointer to co-chair engineering admissions task force
To address the challenge of providing a Purdue Engineering education to a larger number of African Americans and other underrepresented groups, an Engineering Admissions Task Force has been formed.
The task force is co-chaired by Beth Holloway, Assistant Dean for Diversity and Engagement, and Jarvis Jointer, a 2004 graduate of Civil Engineering and the owner of JQOL in Indianapolis. This task force will help us better understand why it has been so difficult for us to offer the opportunity to earn a Purdue degree to some populations, and it will identify new approaches to address this persistent problem.
Mr. Jointer is a 2004 graduate of the Lyles School of Civil Engineering and has spent his career in various roles and experiences in civil engineering including construction administration, site engineering, transportation engineering and environmental engineering. In 2019, Mr. Jointer founded JQOL – Jointer Quality of Life, an Indianapolis civil engineering consulting firm specializing in improving the quality of life.
