We envision an MIT where support is proactive and wellbeing is an essential component of an MIT education.
A sense of belonging is critical for students to thrive at MIT. Student Support and Wellbeing acknowledges and is committed to addressing structural oppression and its impact on our students. We strive to create an environment that is welcoming and instills a sense of belonging. Our dedication to this effort is supported by:
- Ensuring that our interactions, spaces, and practices are welcoming to all students.
- Intentionally working to identify, acknowledge, and reduce unconscious bias.
- Building a diverse staff and supporting them through onboarding and retention efforts.
- Providing ongoing, proactive education on topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
