The experience and counsel of national and international leaders in mathematics and statistics provides valuable insights into and perspectives on the issues facing our programs. The Advisory Board meets annually with members of the departments, and board members are given information on plans for both the department and WPI as a whole. They are invited to respond with advice that will help develop existing and new fields of endeavor. In addition, Advisory Board members assist in identifying the resources required to achieve the strategic goals of the department. The counsel of these eminent professionals is an important element in the planning and development of our mission and vision.
