This program is through the College of Engineering at Purdue. The goal is to encourage engineering students across barriers to meet, get to know, learn from, and collaborate with students from other academic units.
The objectives of the Breaking Barriers and Building Bridges Committee are:
- Introduce graduate students to the graduate community from other academic units.
- Build a supportive network to grad students and increase their engagement in social activities.
- Provide a platform to have common platform for discussion and collaboration over various mutual interested topics
The chair will be expected to meet these objectives through planning a variety of social and/or professional development events. Last year, events included Open Mic Night, Dance Night, and Movie Night.
