UR Multicultural Connections is a program for first-year domestic students from different multicultural backgrounds living in University Residences or studying remotely. While we strive to support students from underrepresented backgrounds, URMC welcomes all Purdue students.

Our goal is to connect students to campus resources and each other while providing a space for students to thrive. Building a home away from home, we help students make a smooth transition to Purdue community.

Additionally, this program provides students with opportunities to gain transferable leadership skills by interacting with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.

The program offers a variety of fun and educational events for students each semester. Our events can be in person, online, or a combination of both. For more information about our events, please check our social media.

We look forward to meeting you soon. Boiler Up!
