The expansion and development in the Purdue University Graduate Program in Industrial Hygiene during the grant period from July 1, 1993 through June 30, 1996 was described. The program was designed to prepare students for advanced careers in industrial hygiene and occupational safety and health, contributing to the supply of highly skilled professionals in these fields, both regionally and nationally. Student enrollment has increased during this period, and several courses have been added to its curriculum, creating a new advisory council and developing several new faculty and faculty student research projects. A plan was also devised to evaluate the impact of the program on industrial and commercial workplaces in the State of Indiana. A program of outreach to local industry was initiated. Program faculty and students have contributed to the field of occupational health and safety through diverse research in such fields as agricultural industrial hygiene, aerosol sampling methodology, biomarkers of lung injury, industrial toxicology, respiratory physiology, and assessment of nonionizing radiation.
