In Loving Memory 


Allene Manning was the Associate Director of Student Services and Development within the Purdue MBA and Master's Programs Team from 2013-2016. During her tenure, she was responsible for onboarding and orientation (K Launch), the Mentoring Program with Christine Jackson, the Board Fellows Program, KGSA and associated clubs advising, Graduate Assistant (GA) Programming in conjunction with Logan Jordan and Shelley Corbin, and the Committee for MGMT 390 and LGL activities. 

Prior to that, she was the Assistant Director of the Minority Engineering Program for 7 years at Purdue University. As the Assistant Director of MEP, Allene was tasked with condensing a full semester of work into a non-credit bearing five-week simulation of the first semester engineering experience at Purdue. This foundation in creating the Engineering Academic Boot Camp content has helped to eliminate performance and retention gaps for underrepresented minorities in engineering. 

Allene, a Boilermaker legacy, received both her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue.
