Abstract

The goal of this IQP was to develop an understanding of community engagement in sustainability at WPI. We conducted a sustainability engagement survey, interviewed key WPI actors, and investigated other universities. We developed findings based on the following themes: barriers, incentives, and leadership. Furthermore, we proposed recommendations for the Community Engagement Working Group and the Office of Sustainability to improve community engagement, including incentivizing and promoting events, communicating information, and seeking expertise to improve the capabilities of the office.
