Office of the President

Dear WPI Community,

As we head into the holiday season—starting with my favorite, Thanksgiving—it bears repeating how much you all have managed to make the most of an incredibly difficult year. Remote learning and reinvented projects, diverted events and canceled plans—a global pandemic doesn’t make anything easy, but each and every one of you rose to the challenge with flexibility, empathy, and grace.

I’m proud of you, but more than that, I’m thankful for you. So, in keeping with the upcoming holiday, I’d like to send you off with a message of thanks and hope as we look toward the coming months.


Happy Thanksgiving, WPI community. Be safe, rest, and recharge—you deserve it.
