In 1996 the Massachusetts Institute of Technology established the Presidential Task Force on Student Life and Learning, charged with undertaking a comprehensive review of MIT's educational mission on the threshold of the 21st century. The Task Force was led by co-chairs Professor R. John Hansman, Jr. (Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics) and Professor Robert J. Silbey (Department of Chemistry).

In the summer of 1998 the Task Force completed and published a final report. This document is available online below. Bound copies of the report are available from the Office of Academic Services at (617) 253-9419.
