Graduates touch the Gompei statue as they pass by at Commencement

Part of the WPI Family Forever

President Laurie Leshin oversaw her final Commencement exercises on May 14, the first time graduates were able to gather as a whole class for in-person ceremonies since May 2019. “I leave, as you do, with so many lessons and so much hope for the future of this great university and beyond,” said Leshin, now the first female director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab. Then she asked the class to do her a favor: “Would it be okay if I consider myself a member of the Class of 2022?” It was a request they accepted wholeheartedly. “You and I will be part of the WPI family forever, and it is this family that makes WPI so special.”
