Supporting WPI through Effective and Equitable Teamwork

The SWEET Center is dedicated to Supporting WPI through Effective and Equitable Teamwork. Our goal is to ensure that every WPI student has at least one highly effective and equitable team experience before they graduate, and that they leave with skills and tools to increase their own ability to collaborate effectively in teams throughout their careers.  The Center provides support and consultation for the teamwork that is at the heart of WPI’s project-based curriculum. Individual students, student teams, and faculty and staff can bring questions and problems related to their teamwork to the SWEET Center and can get support and guidance from staff, faculty, and peer facilitators. Faculty can refer student teams for a consultation, or teams and individuals can seek assistance on their own.

As part of The Global School at WPI, the SWEET Center brings together experts on teamwork from across campus and beyond, creating space for partnerships with students, faculty, and staff that support high-quality teamwork experiences for all WPI students.

Through the SWEET Center, WPI students, faculty, and staff can:

  • Seek resources to propel their teams forward into deeper, more meaningful collaboration
  • Seek individual and team consultation
  • Obtain support for project advising to improve team performance

 Projects are the reason I came to WPI. As a longtime experiential educator and true believer in the transformational power of hands-on learning, I was eager to engage with faculty and students as part of WPI’s project-based curriculum. ... View Profile
