This series is sponsored by Art Heinricher, Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Rosana Pochat, WPI Senior, Ryan Candy, WPI Senior, and Katie Elmes, Director of Expanded Learning Opportunities in Undergraduate Studies; and powered by you! (by your combined sense of passion and responsibility).

The event will once again be held in Open Space, where everyone who attends is equal and anyone who’s there can add a topic to the agenda. Read about Open Space here or watch this video to get a taste of the meeting format. (Online Open Space looks different but feels very much the same.)

Be prepared to be surprised by all that emerges from this event. We can’t make COVID go away, but we can make the spring terms and beyond better for everyone at WPI!  

If you will be joining us, there are a few things we need from each other to make this work for everyone:

  • Please be on video by 3:05 to engage in the Opening Circle. This will last about 20-25 minutes, and then you can come and go as needed. The event will end no later than 5pm
  • To have a better experience, upgrade to Zoom version 5 (or higher) before the event and plan to keep you computer camera turned on
  • Bring paper or a notebook and a bold marker - Yep, real paper!
  • Engage respectfully and civilly with the community
