Task Force Joint Session
The Institute-wide Planning Task Force is charged with assessing how MIT's mission is translated into our day-to-day operations and to explore ways to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of these operations, in the context of our need to reduce significantly overall expenses. The Task Force is organized into nine working groups, each comprised of students, faculty, and staff. The Task Force is intended to be directly advisory to the Provost, the Chancellor, and the Executive Vice President and Treasurer. Since formally launching the Task Force at the Joint Session of the Working Groups on February 17, 2009, its members have become deeply engaged in the work at hand. Below is information from the Joint Session, including background slides and excerpts of remarks made by the President, Provost, Executive Vice President & Treasurer, and Chancellor.
