Thank you for your interest in this WPI event.

 WPI has cancelled all events, including alumni events, of 50 people or more through the month of April in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. Additionally, our Alumni of Color Reception, planned for Thursday, May 6, has been cancelled. While we share your disappointment, we look forward to connecting with you at another time.

Please visit wpi.edu for more information regarding WPI events.


Please join us for an Alumni of Color Reception, hosted by The Office of Multicultural Affairs, The Division of Talent & Inclusion, and the Office of Lifetime Engagement.

This event features WPI Alumna, Trustee, and Luminary, Rev. Dr. Debora Jackson ’89 MS, ’00 ME. Debora has paved the way for underrepresented people of color and women, and is WPI’s first African American woman trustee. She is a sought-after speaker, consultant, preacher, and author. Debora will share a few words about WPI’s efforts in creating an engaging and inclusive environment on campus, and other words of inspiration.

CANCELED - Thursday, May 7, 2020
5:30 – 7:30 PM

WPI Seaport
303 Congress Street, Boston

You will also enjoy time to mingle, reminisce, and make new acquaintances, in addition to networking and supporting one another in advancing your careers.  Refreshments and bar service will be provided.

We’re excited to complement our alumni affinity programs with an Alumni of Color Program, and we look to you to guide us in making this a robust program.

WPI Seaport is for you – for your business meetings while in Boston, a place for you to work, or a hub for your budding start-up company.

Connected faculty and administrative community members will join the festivities in what will be a meet and greet for some, and a reunion for others. Additionally, we will be introducing the newest members in the Office of Multicultural Affairs team!
