Invitation to forum for institutional reaccreditation

September 11, 2019

Dear MIT faculty, postdocs, and research staff,

We are writing to invite you to attend an open forum as part of MIT’s comprehensive review for institutional reaccreditation.

Over the last 18 months, the Institute has conducted a self-study to examine how MIT has changed since its last comprehensive review in 2009, to think critically about the present, and to imagine possibilities for the future. This effort produced a report, which MIT submitted to its accrediting agency, the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), over the summer. You can read more here.

Open Forum for Faculty
Monday, September 23
4:00 – 5:00 PM
Room 10-250

Open Forum for Postdocs/Research Staff
Monday, September 23
4:00 – 5:00 PM
Room 34-101

Our guests will invite your comments and insights about the Institute. These discussions will inform the evaluation process and the team’s report to NECHE. You may come and go throughout the hour.

We encourage you to attend.


Martin A. Schmidt, Provost
Maria T. Zuber, Vice President for Research
