Hockfield to Write on "State of the Institute"
in Next Newsletter

David Lewis

President Hockfield and other senior administrators have agreed to write for future editions of the Faculty Newsletter, with topics of interest to the faculty agreed upon with the Newsletter Editorial Board.

President Hockfield will lead off in the November/December issue by writing on the “State of the Institute,” based on her October 2 Institute forum of the same name. Much like the town meetings held during President Vest’s tenure, the forum will be open to all members of the MIT community and will feature a question and answer period.

Following President Hockfield, other senior administration members will write for each issue of the Newsletter for the remainder of the academic year. Other potential participants include the Provost, the Chancellor, and Senior Vice President.

The Newsletter wishes to thank the administration for recognizing the value of communicating with the faculty through its pages. We expect that the administration will address topics of interest and concern to the faculty. The Editorial Board requests suggestions from the MIT faculty.

You can reach us at, and we strongly encourage you to make your desires known.
