Join in the Sustainability Discussion
WPI is an international leader in engaging students in projects that contribute to sustainability around the world. However WPI has committed itself to do even more to improve the environmental and economic sustainability of our operations and enhance our scholarly and educational contributions to the wider social, environmental, and economic systems within which the university is embedded.
This website is designed to facilitate dialogue and to encourage WPI students, staff, and faculty to engage in research and action promoting sustainability on campus and in communities near and far. The website will evolve rapidly as community members enter the conversation by using the various forums available through the Sharepoint site and contribute resources to the website (project reports, data, notices of related activities, invitations to work on particular issues, etc.). Through open debate and sharing of ideas the university can catalyze the kind of creative, ongoing commitment that is needed to strengthen the institution and its contributions to meeting the challenges of sustainability.
We also look for community input on future directions for the diversity at WPI and to express your interest in volunteering. If you are interested in sustainability please fill out the Interest Form.
