Spectrum News 1 interviewed interim President Winston “Wole” Soboyejo about continuing his research even after taking on more administrative responsibility at the university, and the importance of remaining connected with students at WPI.
Provost Wolo Soboyejo was interviewed for the article which appeared in The Business Journals chain of newspapers across the country, including in Washington, Denver, Albany, and Memphis. “I think this is a conversation that our peers should be having across the country,” Soboyejo said. “I think it's an important dialogue that could really help shape the future of higher ed. How do we give security and academic freedom to faculty so that they can engage our students in environments that are truly transformative?”
