The purpose of CJAC (established in 1969) is to associate with the Corporation a representative group at MIT to which the Corporation can turn for consideration and advice on special Institute-wide matters requiring Corporation attention. In considering such matters, the committee makes available to the Corporation (at the Corporation's request or the committee's own initiative) information, views, and advice resulting from discussion and interaction among students, faculty, and Corporation members.
The committee provides an additional means for bringing student and faculty representatives into regular communication with the Corporation on matters of long-range importance to the MIT community.
The committee also serves to acquaint the MIT community more fully with the role and responsibilities of the Corporation.
The committee, elected annually by the Corporation, consists of 18 members:
Corporation members and faculty are elected for terms ranging from one to three years. Students are elected for one-year terms. The term of service for an ex officio member is concurrent with the term of service in his or her respective office.
The chair is expected to make periodic reports to the Corporation on the deliberations of the committee.
This year the members of CJAC are:
R. Erich Caulfield
