The past five years have been full of extraordinary achievements, including the highlights shared here of our aspirational community coming together to finish strong on Elevate Impact, our strategic plan. 

We saw myriad successes: in the experiences of our undergraduate and graduate students; in our research enterprise; by expanding our global activities; toward making our community a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive place where all can thrive; and for the role of project-based learning in higher education, and its subsequent transformation.

Our goals were bold, but so is WPI. This community thrives on challenge in the spirit of exploration and growth. When we didn’t outright succeed, our willingness to pivot and retool assures we are prepared to redefine what’s possible.

I'd say the sky's the limit, but at WPI we're all about breaking boundaries. 

We face new challenges and opportunities—at WPI, in higher education, and throughout the world. Elevate Impact is a roadmap that will help the university advance toward its goal of becoming the premier global polytechnic.
