Dean of Students


The Dean of Students staff coordinates services, programs, and activities that support the academic success and personal development of our students. Your time as a student at WPI will include tremendous personal growth, clarification of values, and self-exploration. As your partner in this process, we are here to provide guidance and assistance to help our students work through their difficulties and/or referring them to the appropriate resources. As a WPI student, we encourage you to connect with other students, faculty, and staff by becoming active members of our vibrant community.

Our Core Values

Dean of Students staff actively support the following important constructs for our students:

  • Advocacy: Advancing the agenda of students to the university community.
  • Citizenship: Promoting integrity, leadership, personal responsibility, and global perspective.
  • Empowerment: Fostering and encouraging the growth and self-esteem of others.
  • Inclusion: Providing a voice for multiple viewpoints and promoting a culture of civility. 
  • Respect: Modeling care and consideration of all members of our community and their contributions.
  • Support: Demonstrating genuine concern for the health, balance, and well being of others.

WPI Care Team

The WPI Care Team, a group of professional staff members, meets weekly during the academic year to address the safety, welfare, and academic success of students. If a faculty or staff member, student, or parent notices that a student’s behavior is distressed, disruptive, or dangerous, they’re encouraged to fill out the student concern form.

Please note this form is NOT monitored 24/7. If this is an emergency, or to report a party, please call WPI Campus Police at 508-831-5433.
