President's Office Hours

To WPI Undergraduate and Graduate Students:

Welcome to a new academic year at WPI. I hope you had a good summer and have returned (or just arrived!) ready to face new challenges and seek out new opportunities. One of the things I have missed in my first two years as president is the more direct contact I enjoyed with students as a professor and dean. While I enjoy the opportunities I have to interact with you in groups, at sports events, and in passing in the campus center, I would like the opportunity to hear from you more directly. To facilitate this, I will be scheduling office hours each month, so that you can come by to talk with me one-on-one. As my calendar changes frequently, I am announcing the hours for September and October for now, and will add later months as each one draws near.

For September, I will hold office hours on Monday, September 18 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM. The October hours will be on Monday, October 2, also from 2:00 - 4:00 PM. My office is located on the first floor of Boynton Hall.

These office hours do not preclude you from contacting my office for a regular appointment, or from contacting me via e-mail. But if you would just like to stop by for an informal conversation, I would be happy to see you.

Best wishes for a safe and successful new academic year.
