Quality-of-Life Surveys

Quality of Life Surveys
Council on Family and Work

Institute-wide surveys of MIT faculty and staff were conducted by the MIT Council on Family and Work in 2001, in order to investigate the factors that contribute to quality of life for faculty and staff at MIT. Quality of life was defined as the ability to integrate a fulfilling and productive work life with a fulfilling personal and/or family life. The results, and the implications for the future of MIT, were analyzed by the Council and reported to the MIT community in 2002.

Separate surveys were administered for faculty and staff, and separate reports prepared. Copies of both reports are available as pdf files:
