University Caps Globe Series with Feature on Infrastructure
January 29, 2018
Wentworth and The Boston Globe recently launched the final article in a four-part series funded by the Institute and produced in conjunction with BrandLab, the newspaper’s sponsored content studio.
This last installment, focused on infrastructure problems in the United States and related academic programs at the Institute, features Wentworth professors Ilyas Bhatti, Department of Construction Management; Jim Lambrechts, Civil Engineering and Technology; Mark Pasnik; and Mark Klopfer, both of the Department of Architecture. Bhatti and Lambrechts are endowed Douglas C. Elder professors.
The Globe series is part of a Wentworth communications plan launched last summer by the Division of Institutional Advancement to publicize the Institute's new “university” status.
Other highlights of that campaign include underwriting support on WGBH radio and prominent print and online advertisements in The Boston Globe Magazine, Worcester Telegram & Gazette, The Providence Journal, and Springfield Republican.
