Valuing Our Community

An important message from President Pantic’ regarding Executive Order and Wentworth’s commitment to diversity:

January 30, 2017

Dear students, faculty, and staff:

I wanted to follow up on my message to you from this weekend regarding the Executive Order restricting entry into the United States. We are reaching out to students, faculty, and, staff impacted by the Executive Order and to offer guidance and support, as well as to connect them to legal resources. We recognize this is an evolving situation, and we will continue to monitor closely what is happening and to communicate with those of us who may be affected.

Wentworth remains committed to the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff bring to our campus. We want our classrooms filled with people from every corner of the world. This diversity is what makes Wentworth strong.

I appreciate the outreach from the Faculty Senate, the Wentworth Student Government, and other members of our community asking what they can do to help. We should all continue to support, celebrate, and respect the diversity that makes our campus, our community, and our country strong. 

The Center for Diversity and Social Justice Programs will be providing space for reflection, dialogue, and support. In addition, the Center for Wellness and Disability Services will be having walk-in hours all week.

In the meantime, the following staff members are available to answer any questions you may have: Keiko Broomhead, vice president for Enrollment Management (; or Margaret Card, interim vice president for Human Resources (
