Dear WPI Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce voting for WPI’s Staff Council will open on Tuesday, May 28th, and will conclude on Friday, June 7th at 11:59 p.m. 

Voting Process 

In an effort to broaden the representation of employees across the divisions, nominees will be grouped into seven (7) divisional groups, with one (1) member serving from each group. Groups represent an even distribution of employees and job classifications levels of eligible employees. Eligible staff will be able to vote by ranking their choices within each divisional group. You can use the table below to identify the different groups.  

A voting form listing each candidate and Staff Council’s voting companion webpage - where you can learn more about the candidates - will be live on Tuesday, May 28th. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order and will appear under their respective divisional group (see below for the group categories).
