WPI Alumni Association

The WPI Alumni Association represents the global network of WPI graduates, now more than 40,000 strong. Every undergraduate and graduate student who earns a degree from WPI automatically becomes a member of the Alumni Association and can reap the benefits of being a part of this vast network of smart, interesting individuals. An all-volunteer Executive Cabinet and Board of Directors leads the Association, which meets regularly throughout the year to set goals and plan initiatives and programs that support the mission of the Association, the needs of the alumni it represents, as well as WPI’s mission.

Active alumni are encouraged to reach out for information on volunteer opportunities or additional questions. Please contact the WPI Alumni Association at alumni-office@wpi.edu or 508-831-5600.


Our Mission and Work

The missions of the WPI Alumni Association are to:

  1. Be a voice and effective advocate for the alumni body within the WPI community, maintaining an alumni perspective, and
  2. Connect, engage and involve alumni with WPI and one another in support of WPI's mission and goals.

Founded more than 100 years ago by a small group of alumni to promote general interest in education and strengthen ties with the university and each other, the WPI Alumni Association continues this work today while also developing new ways to serve alumni and students. The Association seeks ways to perpetuate WPI’s cherished traditions and inspire pride in the WPI community by promoting our most accomplished and generous alumni through our Alumni Awards program.

The Alumni Association also provides opportunities for our alumni to participate in community service projects, to join other graduates in alumni activities across the globe, and to raise scholarship funds for students. The Association awards over $90,000 in scholarships annually.
