Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) Among University’s Most Generous Donors
Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) member, Jordan Wynn ’22 recently made a President Circle level gift in support of the Women’s Impact Network (WIN) as a way to give back to the university. Serving as a role model for fellow GOLD members, the biochemistry BS/MS major praises the university for fostering an environment where students at all levels have opportunities to be involved in real world projects and where cutting-edge research can be tested in the field.
Wynn, who is currently a research scientist for the Biological and Chemical Technologies Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, believes in WIN and its mission, saying, “By allowing alumni who are passionate about the future of STEM education for girls to give directly to that cause, WIN both inspires and supports leaders to expand STEM access to girls and women throughout the community."
“As a child, I was able to attend multiple STEM events and a plethora of science camps hosted by WPI. Reflecting on the positive impact those programs had on my life, I feel a responsibility to provide future female STEM leaders even better opportunities than I had.”
