WPI honored its most generous donors by launching the newly created 1865 Society. This group recognizes individuals, foundations, and corporations that have given outright gifts of $1 million or more to the university. The 65 inaugural members have contributed over $118 million to support the advancement of WPI. A monument to these philanthropic leaders was installed outside the Campus Center on October 27, 2010; a special celebration followed on October 28.

Endowment support has made it possible to place three inaugural academic deans at WPI—Selçuk I. Güçeri, Bernard M. Gordon Dean of Engineering; Karen Kashmanian Oates, Peterson Family Dean of Arts and Sciences; and Mark P. Rice, Dean of the School of Business and Harry G. Stoddard Professor of Management. In addition to leading their respective academic areas, the new deans are working together and with the faculty across the university to advance WPI’s distinctive undergraduate programs, with their emphasis on project-enriched collaborative learning. They also are working to advance research and graduate education in such important fields as alternative energy, advanced materials, regenerative medicine, robotics, and information security, and on novel developments across the disciplines.

Scholarship donors and recipients came together on the evening of Wednesday, March 23, 2011, at the annual Scholarship Dinner, a WPI tradition that celebrates philanthropy and those who benefit from it. It was a banner year for student scholarship support with transformational gifts from several of WPI’s most generous benefactors. Robert A. Foisie ’56 added $9.4 million to the already established Robert Foisie Scholars Fund for undergraduate students; Priscilla and George Messenger Jr. ’51 pledged more than $6 million from their estate to support the George and Priscilla Messenger Scholarship Fund, also for undergraduate students; Nancy Craig pledged a bequest of $2.2 million in memory of her husband, Donald Craig ’57, to support student scholarships through the Matthew Andrews Craig Memorial Scholarship; and Leonard White ’41 made a $1 million bequest toward the Leonard and Ann White Endowed Scholarship Fund, set up in memory of his wife, to support student financial aid.

With the special distinction of graduating during WPI’s 150th anniversary year, the Class of 2015 arrived on campus Sunday, August 21. This sesquicentennial class sets many records: WPI received more than 7,000 applications for admission to this class, which is composed of more than 1,000 students—the largest ever in the university’s 146-year history. These students’ average SAT composite score (combined verbal and math) is 1298, the highest ever among incoming classes; their average high school grade point average is 3.8, and more than 40 percent had perfect GPAs of 4.0. There are 44 class valedictorians and 55 salutatorians among this group. The class is composed of the largest numbers of women (31 percent), domestic students of color (12.5 percent), and international students (14.5 percent) in WPI history. The Class of 2015 also represent 41 states and 35 foreign countries.
