Nick Steelman

HHS Recruitment Specialist

Student Services


I am a proud Boilermaker born and raised in Purdue country! Traveling the world during a 23-year Navy career, gave me an appreciation for people from so many backgrounds while forging the bond here at home. Stationed in central Texas for the last seven years of my military service, I had the opportunity to travel the beautiful state, training and mentoring young men and women for the Navy Special Warfare and Special Operations communities.

A passion for helping people succeed in life and attain aspirations that may seem out of reach has been a constant in my life. In the recruitment specialist role, I enjoy sharing in the excitement of prospective students as they pave their path toward a rewarding future.

My wife, Hanna and I along with our four children and two rambunctious Doodles are so happy to be a part of this welcoming community.
