A Symphony of Ideas: The inauguration of Edward A. Parrish as WPI's 14th president on Sept. 20, 1996, was an opportunity to celebrate the richness of WPI's history and the promise of its future. It was also a day to share ideas and express opinions that go directly to the heart of WPI's mission as a modern technological university. In this issue of the WPI Journal, we present a sampling of those ideas and opinions.
"Embarking on an Age of Exploration": a message by Connecticut College President Claire L. Gaudiani;
"Making a Difference": the inaugural address of Edward A. Parrish;
"Getting on With the Job of Change": a report on the inaugural symposium.
Eventful Year Prelude to Exciting Era of Opportunity: As one busy academic year ended and another began, WPI found itself on the cusp of a new era in its history. Poised to garner, at last, the national reputation it deserves, WPI launched an ambitious effort to create, by the end of this academic year, a vision for its future.
