Celebrating Latine Heritage Month!
Wentworth Institute of Technology is proud to celebrate Latine Heritage Month! This month, our community is delighted to honor our students, faculty, and staff of Latine heritage and to celebrate the tremendous contributions they have made not only to Wentworth but also to our great country. We are pleased to cultivate a community that admires our progress and also continues to work thoughtfully to make Wentworth Institute of Technology an inclusive and enriching environment for people of all backgrounds to exchange ideas, learn and grow.

Inclusive Excellence means actively and intentionally cultivating a diverse and culturally competent institution where each member has the opportunity and support to reach their full potential and make contributions to our campus community and beyond. Inclusive Excellence is at the center of Wentworth's new strategic plan to which everyone is accountable.
The Center for Diversity and Global Engagement
The Center for Diversity and Global Engagement (CDGE) programs at Wentworth promote cross-cultural perspectives, inclusivity, leadership development and personal growth among the Wentworth community. They foster a welcoming, brave and safe environment for all students with a specific focus on underrepresented populations and their allies through social and educational opportunities such as student organizations, trainings, and more.
The Center for Community and Learning Partnerships
The Center for Community and Learning Partnerships (CLP) enables Wentworth students, staff, faculty, alumni, and local residents to participate in a wide range of community initiatives, from our award-winning community engagement projects and collaborations to our proven college access and success programming.
Industry Corps (INCO), part of Wentworth’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), aims to deliver education-to-career pathways driven by the needs of the local economy for all levels of learners. Built with the “community school” model serving as inspiration, participants have the opportunity to earn stacked credentials that will build their portfolio of skills. A pathway in Construction will serve as INCO's first pathway.
Office of Institutional Equity
Every person in the Wentworth community has a right to be free from discrimination in all Institute programs or activities. The Office of Institutional Equity ensures university-wide recognition of this right.
International Student Services and Engagement
The Office of International Student Services and Engagement celebrates the global student population from 50+ countries and supports their pursuit of higher education and beyond through guidance and resources for understanding immigration regulations, adjusting to life in Boston, and engagement with peers and community.
WIT Diversity Timeline
The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Schumann Library & Learning Commons has partnered to capture significant moments in Wentworth's history that have contributed to campus life related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In order to grow as an inclusive community, we must get to know our history, celebrate our present, and understand what we need to do to strengthen our future.
