Great Minds at Work:
A Community Where You Create Impact

WPI is a collaborative community where faculty and staff celebrate new ideas, respect different opinions, and foster professional and personal growth. We believe the potential for individual innovation and impact is made even greater by the opportunity to collaborate with—and to be challenged by—other great minds. We call this Great Minds Multiplied, and we focus every day on making it work to each employee’s advantage.
