The Office of Multicultural Affairs strives to foster a campus community that respects and celebrates diversity in all its dimensions, including but not limited to differences of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, and physical ability.
The Office serves and supports all members of the WPI community, with additional outreach to students from underrepresented backgrounds. Multicultural Affairs staff members promote social justice, equity, and multicultural awareness through a wide variety of initiatives, programs, and support services, while also providing students with the tools and resources they need to achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals, and become responsible and productive global citizens.
Additionally, the Office of Multicultural Affairs is committed to helping underrepresented groups pursue study and a career in the STEM fields. Diverse teams bring multiple perspectives to problem solving and make strategic decisions that more fully reflect client demographics—the Office strives to increase diversity in the STEM fields to enhance our nation’s creativity and competitiveness in the global economy.
