Religious Diversity

WPI provides religious programming that enable interested students to pursue full spiritual growth and development, and foster a campus atmosphere in which interested members of the college community may freely express their religion and faith.

The goals of WPI's religious programming include assisting interested students to achieve the religious development they seek through:

  • the acquisition of skills and knowledge needed to address issues of values, ethics, and morality in life;
  • providing a forum for dialogue between and among representatives of the religious and the secular; and
  • providing interested members of the campus community with reasonable opportunity to express their faith(s).

WPI's Policy on Religious Observances

A student who is unable, because of his/her religious beliefs, to attend classes or to participate in any examination, study, or work requirement on a particular day shall be excused from any such examination or study or work requirement, and shall be provided with an opportunity to make up such examination, study, or work requirement which he/she may have missed because of such absence on any particular day; provided, however, that such makeup examination or work shall not create an unreasonable burden upon such school.
