RPI to WPI

RPI Dean of Science Laurie Leshin announced today she will become the president of Worcester Polytechnic Institute this summer. Lehsin -- a geochemist and self-described space nerd -- has been in the news a fair amount over the last few years because of her involvement with NASA and the Mars Curosity Rover.
