Alden Center Dedication

Alden Center Dedication

On Aug. 27, 2009, Worcester Polytechnic Institute officially opened the George I. Alden Life Sciences and Bioengineering Educational Center following an $11.5 million renovation made possible by a major gift from the George I. Alden Trust, WPI's most generous donor. The gift supports WPI's goal of raising its undergraduate life sciences education to a world-class level and has enabled the university to transform a dated building into a dynamic, well-equipped learning center that promotes cross-disciplinary teaching. The Alden Center is designed to accommodate growing interest in the life sciences and related engineering programs at WPI – enrollment in these fields has increased by 86 percent over the past four years – and to prepare students for success in the rapidly expanding life sciences sector. More information on the Alden Center can be seen in this video.
