To the members of the MIT community:

At MIT, our commitment to excellence, innovation, and service propels us forward as individuals and as a community. I am constantly inspired by the remarkable energy and ideas our community generates, and the positive changes our faculty, students, staff, and postdocs dare to imagine and then make happen.

To recognize the contributions of our friends and colleagues, I encourage you to submit a nomination for the 2019 MIT Awards, a collection of about 40 awards that celebrate MIT community members for their excellence in academics, teaching, the arts, athletics, leadership, entrepreneurship, community building, and public service. These awards will be presented at the annual MIT Awards Convocation on May 13, 2019 in the Samberg Center.
