This message was sent to the WPI community.

I am delighted to announce that the voting results for WPI’s Inaugural Staff Council are in. The nine staff members below make up our initial council, and nine more will be elected in spring 2023. Thank you to all candidates who expressed interest in serving on the Staff Council and to staff across the campus who participated in the elections. Nearly 65% of eligible staff cast a vote. This engagement is terrific, and we look forward to our on-going engagement. 

The Staff Council will represent the voice of non-union staff on campus and will serve as an advocate to support the interests and needs of staff, while supporting the mission, values, and strategic goals of WPI. The Council will collaborate with the Division of Talent & Inclusion to support a positive and inclusive environment for all WPI staff.

You can learn more about the Staff Council by visiting the Staff Council webpage. If you have further questions about the Staff Council in general, I encourage you to email the Staff Council’s account at

Please join me in congratulating your elected representatives whose service on the Staff Council will be for the period August 2022 through June 2024.
