A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION – “GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT AT WENTWORTH: TODAY AND TOMORROW”
As was recently announced at the Community Day presentation, the Office of the Provost is planning a series of open meetings to consider the future of global engagement at Wentworth. A group of committee members—including a diverse representation of faculty, staff, and students—will have an organizing meeting next Tuesday, January 22nd, to discuss prospective agendas and to find dates for university-wide sessions open to everyone. We will plan a review of global activities already taking place at WIT; will look at projects and strategies at other schools; and, perhaps most importantly, will talk about how and why global engagement is broadly important for Wentworth, including our students, faculty and staff. Thank you to all who have agreed to serve as organizers and we look forward to an inspirational and wide series of conversations about transforming lives through tackling critical global issues. A schedule of upcoming open sessions will be forthcoming, so stay tuned!
The Provost has announced the launch of a community-wide initiative to define, build consensus and establish a plan to develop a unified model of shared governance that best aligns with Wentworth’s long-standing educational mission, the guiding principles of the Leopard’s Oath and the Board’s commitment to the highest standards of fiduciary responsibility.
