Brendan Griffiths

Brendan works as a Student Success Manager in Graduate Studies and has been with WPI since the Fall of 2021. His role focuses on supporting PhD students in their self-directed development. He got a few years into a PhD program himself before recognizing that he prefers working with humans to bacteria and molecules. He graduated with an MS and, after a few years and a series of planned happenstances, became an Academic Life Coach in 2019. He loves the work and especially appreciates how coaching allows one to support another making positive changes in life without dictating their decisions or making value judgements for them.
