Management Volunteer Program (MVP)


Management Volunteer Program (MVP) provides Krannert Master’s students with opportunities to act as servant leaders through volunteer events and charity events held on Purdue’s campus, within the Greater Lafayette community and nationally.

The Krannert Management Volunteer Program (MVP) is an organization for graduate students who volunteer in and contribute to the local community. Founded by MBA students in 1991, MVP is responsive to community needs. In addition to providing free services to the Lafayette community, MVP offers students a chance to hone their leadership and organizational skills. MVP partners with organizations like Food Finder’s Food Bank, SendRelief, YWCA, Habitat for Humanity, the Almost Home Humane Society and many others to provide volunteer/consulting services and fundraisers.  In 2017, Krannert MVP students volunteered as a team of students for hurricane relief in Houston, Texas, accumulating 264 hours.
