Our changemakers push boundaries every day to make a better world for all of us.

Welcome to the Every Day Matters blog, where we share the voices of students, faculty, staff, alumni, alumnae, and friends of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute who are making a difference in the world.

You’ll find a mix of topical research, groundbreaking innovations, and creative solutions that push boundaries every day to make our world better. We also share the perspectives of our changemakers on some of the most pressing issues of today.

Our community includes over 100,000 living alumni and thousands of students from around the world. We come together in every walk of life to face the global challenges of the 21st century.
