“Welcome to the Family”

President Leshin addresses WPI families at 2014 Parents’ Weekend

Your son or daughter is clearly being well supported by you – because you’re here, I can tell you have close-knit and involved families, much like the community I like to think of as the WPI family. These great folks you just met, and all those who helped organize this weekend are examples of how our WPI family, our community, is here to support you and yours.

Ready for Liftoff

WPI is fully committed to educate your son/daughter, to care for them, and to position them on a path to success in their careers and lives. I am here because I‘ve made it my personal mission in life, every day, to ensure that we deliver on that promise.
