The Community Leadership Experience is designed to provide a space for WPI students to create and lead their own educational experience while teaching their peers about captivating topics. I&E student leaders should be able to connect, engage, and inspire their peers through programs designed to add value and build a stronger I&E community. With the support of the I&E team, students will have the opportunity to create and lead their program using best practice approaches in program management and design thinking.
The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center will provide funding to support individuals or student groups who are selected to participate in delivering impactful educational experiences to the I&E community. These opportunities are related to all WPI field of studies such as computer science, engineering, cybersecurity, humanities, global I&E, robotics, social science and policies.
Applicants will have the opportunity to propose any educational program that will provide advance learning among the I&E community. We will accept 2 – 5 applicants per semester (Fall & Spring) and provide dedicated funds of up to $1,000 per program for materials and supplies. Proposed program(s) should be tailored to be inclusive of all WPI students and areas of study, with a focus on interdisciplinary engagement.
