CLD’s Bowen Initiative, named after Bob Bowen of Bowen Engineering and in partnership with the Minority Engineering Program (MEP) at Purdue University, provides students and supportive adults with the opportunity to engage in hands-on engineering projects, learn more about the industry, tour Purdue’s campus and experience a Purdue University football game.

This Initiative has two parts:

October 5, 2022 from 5:00-7:00PM at Center for Leadership Development

Hands-on introduction to engineering with the Purdue University Minority Engineering Program’s IDEAS (Introducing Diversity through Engagement and Service) Learning Community class. Students build an engineering related project in groups, compete against their cohort and learn more about the industry.

November 5, 2022 from 6:00AM-5:30PM (approx.) at Purdue University

Students plus one supportive adult meet at CLD to board buses bound for Purdue University. On campus, students and supportive adults will tour the university, learn more about the engineering program, network with students, build an unique engineering related project and end their afternoon at the Purdue University vs. Wisconsin Badgers football game.
