Special Interest Organizations 

Special Interest Organizations seek to promote the overall well-being of students at Wentworth by providing an outlet for social interaction through a common interest. Special Interest Organizations are groups that are not directly academic and do not participate in athletic competition. Whatever your interests may be, we can find where you FIT here at WIT! 

 

 

 

 

Academic Organizations 

Academic Organizations are focused on academic pursuits and typically are associated with majors of study at Wentworth. These groups connect classroom content into real life application through programs, conferences, and competitions.  

 

 

 

 

Diversity and Social Justice Organizations

All of our Diversity & Social Justice student organizations are open to anyone who wants to join regardless of identity or major, as long as you support the mission of the organization. For more information check out their page here, or contact Richard Meinke, Assistant Director in the Center for Diversity and Social Justice Programs at meinker@wit.edu

Club Sports Organizations

Looking to stay active at Wentworth? Wentworth’s Club Sports teams provide a safe but competitive recreational outlet for students at WIT. Our teams practice weekly and travel locally to compete with other club sports teams. Designed to improve and compliment the quality of campus life, being involved with a club sport can refine leadership skills, promote organizational management, build lasting connections and they can be fun!  

To participate in club sports please take a look at the Club Sports Waiver and Clearance Information located here: Club Sports 

Club and Organization Match Card 

Not sure which clubs/organizations to join? That's ok! We can help. If you are not sure what groups might interest you most you can submit the Club and Organization Match Card found on our Forms Page. This Match Card will ask a few questions about hobbies, interests, and areas of study. After submitting this form our Student Organization Council will look through the information and connect you with 4-6 groups that you might want to check out. 

Creating a Club at Wentworth 

Has your club/organization simply not been created yet? Do you have a really awesome idea to start something new? Great! We want to hear about it. At Wentworth you are welcome to submit the New Club Interest Form and tell us about your idea to start a new club. In order to do so you must have the following: 

  • A Club Constitution 
  • 10 Founding Members
  • 1 Faculty/Staff Advisor (must be a full-time employee of Wentworth) 
  • 1 President and 1 Treasurer 
  • Final Approval by the Center for Student Engagement Assistant Director 

If you are interested in this process, please contact Jackie Herb, Assistant Director in the Center for Student Engagement for more information, herbj@wit.edu
