URM Finding Fit Content Package


To emphasize Purdue as a place of belonging and to show that there is a place on campus for every student, we are featuring stories from underrepresented minority (URM) students. The first feature is Kamilah Valentin-Diaz, a student involved in many cultural centers and organizations at Purdue.

The second story features Boilermakers from the historically Black fraternities and sororities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). The NPHC is made up of nine organizations, seven of which are represented at Purdue.


These resources can be used to highlight the breadth of student organizations at Purdue, with a focus on URM clubs and organizations. Kamilah demonstrates that Purdue is filled with opportunities to grow, take risks and find your community. Additionally, NPHC student leaders shed light on the positive impact their organizations, and the council as a whole, have had on Purdue’s campus.

With over 1,000 student clubs and organizations at Purdue, the story emphasizes that no matter what your interests are, there’s a place for everyone here.
