As short days and long nights slow the pace of life a bit, I find myself reflecting on the flurry of activity that closed out the calendar year on The Hill. Undoubtedly, the highlights were the partnered success of Giving Day and the global launch of Beyond These Towers: The Campaign for WPI.

Beyond These Towers: The Campaign For WPI
The campaign entered its public phase and positions WPI to meet the world’s ever-growing demand for innovators, educators, makers, and doers—people with the know-how and the tenacity to work across disciplinary, cultural, and geographic boundaries to take on the world’s greatest and most consequential problems. With Beyond These Towers: The Campaign for WPI, we launch our expedition to a brighter world.
One of the many important initiatives supported during Giving Day and through Beyond These Towers: The Campaign for WPI is a new Center for Well-Being. The Center will serve as a hub for university-wide efforts to elevate student and campus well-being. Please consider a gift in support of mental health awareness training for students, faculty, and staff; for peer advocacy, education, and wellness programming; and for academic initiatives to promote well-being.
