Accomplishments in DUE

By Dan Hastings, Dean for Undergraduate Education

Dean Daniel HastingsWe are at the end of the term and almost at the end of the academic year. This has been a difficult year for MIT and DUE. We accomplished a great deal while dealing with budget cuts in the current year and planning for cuts that will be the largest in the history of DUE. During the past year we delivered with high quality on the NEASC accreditation review; developed a plan to moderate the growth of financial aid; enabled the faculty to move forward in the HASS changes; and admitted another great class. The fact that we could accomplish all this is a testament your dedication and professionalism.

I am proud of the quality of the DUE team. We have strong leadership in the DUE office heads and an exceptional staff who work hard to support and enhance the educational experience of MIT students. I want to ask all of you to reflect on your accomplishments for this past year and feel proud of what you have done. I am pleased with how well DUE has delivered and tell that to all who ask me.
