As of March 17, WPI is no longer permitting visitors to campus. All WPI employees who are able to work from home, including University Advancement staff, have been asked to do so. Please do not come to campus during this time. Advancement staff are available by phone and email during regular office hours of 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. You can contact the Alumni Relations Office at alumni-office@wpi.edu, 508-831-5600, for assistance.

We will continue to keep you informed of any changes.

Traditions are what draw us in and pull us back. They are cherished and revered. They give us chills and create wonderful memories of times spent on campus. Upon them, many great things can be built. They create the tie that binds the entire WPI community—the students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

As a WPI graudate, you can be proud to count yourself among this illustrious group of innovative problem solvers who are always breaking new ground, seeking better solutions, and creating positive change in the world.

Jodi Gernon ’86: Leading the Arthur Rock Center for Entrepreneurship at HBS

Jodi (Griesemer) Gernon is the first to admit that the tumultuous, exhilarating world of start-ups, entrepreneurial endeavors, and seat-of-the-pants potential isn’t for everyone.

“In a start-up, all bets are off,” she says. “You have to figure out what problem the company is trying to solve, and it has to be a problem you want to work on. You have to create it and develop it from the get-go.”

Eric Soederberg ’83: Sunrise Lab’s innovations are both changing and saving lives

For an electrical engineer in the medical device world, Eric Soederberg’s role models aren’t entirely—well—expected. “Oh, Gandhi, probably,” says Soederberg, with a self-effacing laugh. He falls silent for a moment, tousling his auburn hair. “Although, lately I’ve been asking myself, ‘What would Fred Rogers do?’” he adds, drumming his fingers on the table.

The Father of the Plan:
Bill Grogan '46

WPI's latest book, The Presiding Genius of the Place, explores the life of the late Bill Grogran '46, dean emeritus of undergraduate studies, whose influence and leadership forever changed WPI. 

Building the Hill Together

The Foisie Innovation Studio and Residence Hall, as pictured in this architectural rendering, is named to honor WPI's most generous benefactor, Robert A. Foisie '56—but it also pays homage to the university's growing tradition of philanthropy.

Every gift makes an impact.
