Task Force on the Undergraduate Educational Commons

DocumentsRelated InitiativesMembershipStudentsNewsMembers Area

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has established a Presidential Task Force on the Undergraduate Educational Commons in order to undertake a fundamental, comprehensive review of the common educational experience of our undergraduates in the early years of the 21st century.

Given the ever increasing centrality of science and engineering to our world, the changing demography of our students, and the advance of pedagogy and learning methods, it is time for MIT to reflect on the common experiences of learning and discovery that give basic definition to our undergraduate education.

MIT is compelled to undertake this review for our students, for our faculty, and for society, so that we can fulfill our mission to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship to best serve the nation and the world in the future.


Faculty Newsletter: The latest issue of the Faculty Newsletter is devoted to comments on the report of the Task Force on the Undergraduate Educational Commons.

Faculty Comments: Share opinions, ideas, and suggestions about the report.
