The sun’s coming up on a new year, but it doesn’t feel right to move into 2021 without once more acknowledging the flexibility, determination, and commitment shown by WPI’s students, faculty, and staff to make it through a year like no other—and to do so together.
After two months of normalcy, March 2020 had us—and the world—taking a hard turn into uncharted territory, and we responded by doing what we do best: coming together as a community of problem solvers, using our collective passions, empathy, and expertise to respond to this unprecedented global crisis.
Hybrid courses, reinvented labs and projects, and a robust COVID-19 testing protocol combined with upheld traditions, sports and band practices, and continued groundbreaking research. While 2020 undoubtedly looked different, it was still very much WPI. The resiliency of our community has never been more evident, and while the pandemic continues on, so do we.
