Wentworth Athletics at a Glance

 

 
Leopard Philosophy

 

The philosophy of the Wentworth Institute of Technology Athletic Department is founded upon a strong belief that athletics is a very useful facet of the total educational experience provided by our institution. The department believes student-athletes will develop skills for success in life through a quality athletic program, one which provides an opportunity for the student-athlete to develop as a whole person. Student-athletes will take the intercollegiate experience gained and successfully transfer it to their chosen career when they complete their undergraduate education and leave Wentworth.



Given this, Wentworth places equal emphasis on its men's and women's sports with the quality of competition being very similar for both genders. The Institute supports student-athletes in their efforts to attain high levels of competitive performance and excellence by providing them with top level coaching; high quality facilities; appropriate and safe uniforms and protective equipment; and the right level of competitive opportunities against student-athletes attending similar institutions. While Wentworth places a primary emphasis on in-season or traditional competition, it encourages teams to compete in nontraditional seasons and exceptional teams and individuals to compete in post-season championships.
