The role of the Student Success Manager is to support students throughout their journey at WPI in a way that is complementary to the academic advising they receive in their departments. Student Success Managers help students by providing quick answers to their questions, helping them overcome obstacles, and showing them how to access important services offered by the university. They will connect regularly with the student, via phone and email, to ensure they are equipped with the tools to succeed in every course they take.  For general questions, please email:
