Service at MIT
“…this is a generation that wants to make a difference. They don’t feel defeated by the scale of a challenge. They’re ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work solving the problems of our time, great and small. I think of them as ‘Generation Why Not?’”
— MIT President Dr. Susan Hockfield
