We walk the talk with hands-on learning, required cooperative education experiences and caring faculty. Read on to discover our promise to you and our strategy to make these promises a reality.

Strategic Plan

The University of Now hasn’t always been our tagline, but it has always been our ethos. Wentworth was launched at a time when American society was in transition. Post-Civil War industrial expansion, urbanization, and immigration created both the need for new economic and employment opportunities and the means of fulfilling that need. This ethos has kept our university restless and ambitious. As inheritors of this legacy, we have many strengths on which to build our strategic plan.
