A Presidential Charge to Define the Future of MIT Education

Daniel Hastings, Dean for Undergraduate Education

President Rafael Reif has established a Task Force to define the future of the MIT education. I anticipate that key DUE people will be involved in this Task Force. This Task Force has the dual task of considering the future of our education, in light of the impact of digital technologies, and also thinking about how this education can be financed, in light of the financial pressures in higher education and on us. Several of our offices have experts in one or more of these areas.

The charge to the Task Force was extensively discussed at a recent Academic Council retreat and all the Deans are very supportive of this major effort. It offers an opportunity for MIT to position itself as a leader in education for the next several years.
