Research shows the success of a bacterial community depends on its shape.
The Presidential Task Force on Student Life and Learning's report will be available in print to all members of the MIT community on Friday and will be available on the web after September 7.
The report will be mailed to faculty, student leaders and academic staff prior to the September 16 faculty meeting. Students, staff, faculty, alumni/ae, parents and other members of the MIT community may request additional copies by e-mail or telephone through Anders Hove, firstname.lastname@example.org, x3-6399.
During the fall, there will be many opportunities for members of the community to discuss the report. The report's recommendations will be on the agenda at the Alumni Leadership Conference in September, at the Family Weekend in October, and at the September meeting of the faculty. In addition, a number of graduate and undergraduate discussion groups will be organized and led by the Task Force's Student Advisory Committee.
