Supporting students in need.
Our Mission: Residential Education is committed to the development of a welcoming, safe, and inclusive living and learning community that fosters intellectual, physical, spiritual, and personal development through diverse and enriching experiential learning opportunities in the unique and exciting culture that is MIT.
How We Fulfill Our Mission: We partner with students, faculty, staff, and alumni to promote engaged communities and individual development. Through shared-governance, we work towards a seamless integration of the academic and residential student experience and facilitate opportunities for learning that promote creative thinking, curiosity, leadership, citizenship, inclusion, and a commitment to life-long learning.
Our Vision: Residential Education at MIT will develop and sustain a high-quality living and learning experience for all students that reflects the Institute’s and DSL’s mission and is recognized for its innovation and excellence.
