The Alumni Relations staff works closely with the Alumni Association, a volunteer-led organization that provides benefits and services to WPI graduates. The Office of Alumni Relations, as part of the University Advancement Division, spearheads a wide range of alumni events, including Alumni Weekend, Homecoming, project center events, and many others, as well as communications vehicles such as The Bridge, and the alumni website. In concert with University Marketing and Communications division, the office also contributes to the WPI Journal, the alumni magazine.

Higgins House, surrounded by a formal English garden, serves as the backdrop for many alumni events and houses the Office of the Vice President for University Advancement, the Office of Alumni Relations, and the Office of Advancement Events and Communications.

You’ll find the Alumni Relations team and some other members of University Advancement Division in the stately Higgins House, one of the more unusual buildings on the WPI campus. Built in 1923, Higgins House is a miniature duplicate of the Compton Wynyates castle in Warwickshire, England. The structure was built by WPI alumnus Aldus Chapin Higgins and his wife, May, who bequeathed the house to WPI in 1971.
