Implementation Team

In alignment with WPI’s mission and values, we encouraged participation across our community in building the implementation teams.  Our goal was to ensure diverse viewpoints and representation would be included on the teams.  A process was established to solicit community members to volunteer, or nominate a colleague, to participate on a team.  As a result, the established teams consist of new voices from a diverse group of faculty and staff from various schools and departments.  Together, these teams and our community as a whole, are engaged in moving the Lead With Purpose plan forward.

Team Rosters from Implementation Year 1 are found below.
