The Year Ahead—Moving Forward Mindfully

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.

What You Need to Know Now

These are the latest updates as of September 8, 2020
  • We launched a COVID-19 testing dashboard of the results of WPI’s regular screenings; when combined with related trends in the City of Worcester, they will help inform the ongoing campus operating status.
  • A new video details safety protocols in the Sports & Recreation Center.
  • The Symptom Tracker is now available and is required daily for anyone working, taking classes, or participating in meetings or activities on campus at all during A- and B-Term.
  • COVID-19 has an impact on the Student Code of Conduct.  Read, understand, and follow the new rules, in addition to the standard code

Keeping WPI Together

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.
