Abstract Scope In an increasingly diverse society, the lack of enrollment and retention of underrepresented minority students in graduate studies has been one of the main concerns of scholars in higher academia. Constraints arising from geographic accessibility further limit the recruitment scope for institutions. Historically, Purdue MSE’s recruiting efforts have been geographically biased, using events through the BigTen+ Graduate Expo, and others that require students being physically present on campus. As the world becomes progressively more interconnected, geographic barriers to recruitment are beginning to break down via advances in telecommunications and digital media efforts. In this talk, we discuss recent efforts by the Purdue Materials Engineering Graduate Student Association to generate student pipelines from a broader geographic range. In particular, we focus on discussing robust virtual methods for increasing accessibility to prospective students, developing long term connections with undergraduate research mentors, and ongoing initiatives with student cultural organizations.
