Office of Sustainability


It is with great sadness that we share news of Liz Tomaszewski's passing after a courageous battle with cancer. 

Liz was truly dedicated to advancing WPI’s sustainability programs and initiatives throughout her time at WPI until she retired in 2020. She served as Associate Director of Sustainability, was a valuable member of the facilities team, and also provided important support for the WPI Community through her role as Ombudsperson.  Liz was a respected member of our community, supported all of us in countless ways, and was a friend to a vast number of WPI students, faculty, and staff.  The numerous emails posted on WPI’s Potpourri email distribution are a testament to the positive impact she had on all of us and what she meant to so many members of our community. She made WPI a better place, and she will be missed dearly.
