This academic year will be unlike any other, but––as is typical at WPI––we have a plan, one that is driven by science and allows us to continue to deliver a world-class learning experience for all. It will require all of us to work together to stay together: that means making smart decisions, supporting and looking out for each other, and following health and safety protocols to protect both ourselves and our Herd.
As the term progresses, check this site frequently for new information, updates, and resources.
WPI is closely tracking the health of our community through frequent, routine COVID-19 testing of every student, faculty member, employee, and contract worker that will physically be on campus. This data will help inform the campus operating status.
The health, safety, and well-being of our community must be the highest priority for each of us, and that means taking personal responsibility to keep #WPITogether.
The return to campus video series offers a sneak peek at changes on campus until you can see them for yourself in person. Stay tuned for more videos as the fall semester progresses.
On August 26 during the last Virtual Employee Town Hall before the academic year begins, President Leshin provided a great deal of details on health, safety, testing, academics, student move-in, our Code of Conduct, and more.
