Mission & Objectives

The Agricultural and Biological Engineering Graduate Student Association (ABE GSA) was founded in 2007 by a group of graduate students. The association strives to develop a community between graduate students in ABE by organizing social and professional activities. All ABE graduate students are automatic members of the ABE GSA and are encouraged to participate in the organized events. Events are open to anyone affiliated with ABE, as well as their friends and significant others. The events are planned to meet the wide range of interests among graduate students and the hope is that the ABE GSA will have something for everyone.


  1. Foster a sense of community among the ABE graduate students through the development of a social network
  2. Aid in the professional growth of ABE graduate students
  3. Recruit new graduate students to the ABE department at Purdue and mentor them from their admittance
  4. Assist with the identification and nomination of graduate students to various departmental, college and university committees/functions
