The Building Community Through the Arts program was established as a community outreach project designed to reach the diverse external communities served by Purdue University Northwest. The program is directed by an advisory committee whose members represent diverse areas from across the campus community.
The program helps to fulfill an important part of our mission at Purdue University Northwest, which is to provide excellent educational preparation for our students, while also providing an opportunity to promote the communities we serve. We are extremely fortunate to be able to enjoy such an overwhelming response, semester after semester, from our faculty, staff and students as well as individuals and organizations that represent our ethnically and culturally rich communities.
