Community & Government Relations

The Office of Community & Government Relations (CGR) at Wentworth Institute of Technology is the main contact for interaction with public officials. Our goal is to identify and cultivate institutional relationships and partnerships with the external community. We foster a positive relationship with our neighbors through transparent, ongoing communications and collaboration. We are proud of our longstanding partnerships. In addition, we keep the local community and public officials informed of important developments at the institute.
