WPI suspends all travel to its Global Projects Centers for the 20-21 academic year.

October 8, 2020

In consultation with senior leadership and the university’s Coronavirus Emergency Response Team (CERT), WPI has suspended all travel to its Global Projects Centers for the 20-21 academic year. The risks associated with the global COVID-19 pandemic, and efforts to support the health and safety of our students made this unfortunate decision necessary. The decision follows the guidance of local, regional, and national authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. State Department, International SOS and the Massachusetts Governor’s office which are advising against non-essential travel.

Project center directors and faculty advisors have and will continue to create meaningful project opportunities and global experiences for teams on campus, working remotely with our global partners when possible.
