Vice President for Communications

Massachusetts Institute of Technology
77 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02139-4307

The vice president for communications leads MIT’s central communications strategy, engaging communications leaders from across the Institute. He has oversight of the News Office, and also works Institute-wide to better connect its activities with those of the communications professionals who work on behalf of MIT’s schools, departments, labs, and centers to make the whole of MIT's communications greater than the sum of its parts.

In addition, the vice president for communications is responsible for emerging forms of public engagement, and will support MIT’s upcoming capital campaign. He will also work to ensure that all parts of the Institute attract and retain the finest available communications talent.

He will help MIT fulfill its mission by connecting and informing the Institute’s core and peripheral communities. Specifically, he will lead three related efforts on behalf of the Institute: telling MIT’s story to the world in order to make plain its excellence and attract the talent and resources necessary to fulfill its mission; telling its story to—and creating connections among—the members of MIT’s global community, in order to share Institute news and stoke collaboration; and connecting MIT’s online learners, and those who wish to help MIT solve great challenges, with each other, and with the Institute.
