Trustee Mentor Program

Make a difference. Have an impact. Connect with a Trustee Mentor.

The Trustee Mentor Program pairs student leaders with members of the WPI Board of Trustees to foster communication and provide mentoring opportunities. Interacting with highly successful community members, our students learn valuable networking and leadership skills. Student leaders are able to create connections with their Trustee Mentors, discussing issues that impact the student body with those who closely advise university decision makers. Trustee Mentors gain valuable insight into campus life and share their own experiences.  Interested applicants must be rising juniors and seniors with leadership experience.  The application process begins in C-Term of each academic year.
