Sense of Place: A Visible Statement
A mural celebrating diversity in STEM, funded by members of the Class of 2021 and others, was unveiled during a ceremony at Homecoming on Sept. 18. Local artist Sharinna Travieso was selected by the Senior Class Gift Committee to design and install the mural, which is located on the brick wall of the Rubin Campus Center that faces the Innovation Studio. “Our gift hopefully will spark conversations, influence policy on campus, and encourage more scholarships and work to be done for an improved future for our school and community. It sets the precedent for future diversity initiatives at WPI,” says committee member Colleen O’Malley ’21.
