The class of 2001 "case study" is a first step toward an Integrated Student Information System (ISIS). The goal is to create a database to allow analysis of team dynamics and community structure implicit in data on this portion of the WPI student body. The database is currently incomplete, but the structure created will conveniently accept future data. A theory about the "clustering" of MBTI types lead to the analysis of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. I found a cluster quite different from the student body as a whole in unanticipated ways. Hence, this approach promises to be very revealing.
