Happy 45th Anniversary, Interphase!

Office of Minority Education

Interphase 45th anniversary logoThe Office of Minority Education will mark a major milestone in the Interphase program by hosting a 45th Anniversary Gala at the Museum of Science on April 26. Launched in 1969, Project Interphase (now officially known as Interphase EDGE) is a two-year enrichment program designed to help incoming freshmen transition to MIT and facilitate community-building. Interphase scholars participate in a seven-week summer session and additional academic year programming throughout the freshman and sophomore year.

The black-tie celebration features keynote speaker Kristala Jones Prather '94, the Theodore T. Miller Career Development Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and the first Interphase alum to become a tenured professor at MIT. The event will bring together the entire Interphase family—alumni, instructors, facilitators, students, staff, and friends—to honor the legacy and the future of this thriving program.
