WPI Community Open Space - WPI Post-Pandemic

Wednesday, May 05, 2021
12:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Join Open Space Sponsors Katie Elmes (Undergraduate Studies), Rosana Pochat (WPI Student), Ryan Candy (WPI Student), and Art Heinricher (Undergraduate Studies) for an event dedicated to discuss the question "what could WPI look like post-pandemic?" This event will be held as our last Open Space of the academic year. This means that while there is an important theme, once the gathering starts, anyone can put forward a meeting topic that they want to discuss. We encourage you to submit a topic you would propose if you were in attendance here or take a look at what others have proposed here.

The schedule will be as follows. Feel free to come and go as you need (for as little or long as you’re available). All we ask if you try to make an Opening Session at some point in the day. In Open Space, all are welcome and all are equal. 

Opening Session #1: 12-12:30pm EDT
