Guidelines to Create WPI Research Centers and Institutes

The Office of the VPR together with the Research Development Council and CGSR have developed guidelines, which delineate procedures for proposing, establishing, reviewing, and discontinuing research centers and institutes at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.  You may use this form or create your own document addressing all categories to submit the proposal for a new research center or institute to the Vice Provost for Research.
