HHS Connex

Embrace Your Boilermaker Community Through HHS Connex

In the College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS), we stand together to support your next giant leap. Through the new HHS Connex program, you’ll have access to additional events, activities and experiences beyond existing HHS programming that are designed to foster community, belongingness and allyship among HHS undergraduate students. The program is sponsored by the HHS Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the HHS Undergraduate DEI Committee.

Stay up to date on the latest activities and learn more about DEI in HHS by following @HHSConnex on Instagram. Please email us at hhsconnex@purdue.edu with any questions, comments or suggestions.
