Dear members of the MIT community,

This afternoon, I wish to communicate about the violence in Israel and Gaza, and my concerns for our community.

You can watch this brief video and find a transcript of my comments on the Office of the President website.

Caring for members of our community

If you or someone you know is seeking support, there are several academic support and mental health services available for students; for employees, there are services available on a wide range of issues, from grief counseling to crisis intervention; and for faculty and instructional staff, there is guidance about how to support students in and outside of the classroom.
