Diversity and Inclusion

The strength of MIT hinges on the myriad backgrounds, identities, cultures, and perspectives of our students, faculty, and staff. Everything we do must be informed by an unwavering commitment to advance diversity and inclusion.

Many offices, programs, and initiatives are already working to effect positive change. At the institutional level, the Institute Community and Equity Office (ICEO) has championed efforts to advance a respectful and caring community that embraces diversity at MIT.

At the undergraduate level, the Office of Minority Education provides a wide range of academic, professional, and mentoring programs and services to support underrepresented minority students. Similarly, the Office of Graduate Education has played a leading role in a number of diversity initiatives for graduate students.

We also provide support for specific constituencies, from international and first-generation students to our LGBTQ community and DACA students impacted by the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

We will continue to strive to create an even more welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community—one that can truly harness MIT’s unrivaled capacity to create a better world, for generations to come.
