Purdue University Minority Engineering Programs Salutes the Life and Legacy of Dr. Melissa Exum

Dr. Melissa Exum passed away on April 22, 2015 at the age of 54 in her home. She will be missed by family, friends, and colleagues and by Minority Engineering Programs at Purdue University.

Dr. Melissa E. Exum, came to Purdue University in August of 2010 to serve as Purdue University's new vice president for student affairs after serving as dean of students and associate vice chancellor of student affairs at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Exum earned her doctorate in higher education administration from Ohio University, her master's degree in medical sociology from University of Maryland-Baltimore County and a bachelor's degree in sociology from Wake Forest University.

Dr. Exum was a pillar of student support in the communities that she served. A champion for student access and success, students both here at Purdue and at every institution that she served pay homage and special tribute to the impact she had on their lives and their careers. After serving at Purdue for four years, in July 2014 Dr. Exum was appointed to serve as the new vice provost for student affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University. 
She will be missed and we salute her dedication and service to student success.
