Center for Work, Family & Personal Life Changes Name


The Center for Work, Family & Personal Life has changed its name to the MIT Work-Life Center. “The change was a natural outgrowth of our plans to create new materials and new channels of communication for the community,” said Rae Simpson, PhD, who co-manages the Center with Kathy Simons.  “The name better reflects the broad diversity of services that the Center offers,” Simpson said.

The MIT Work-Life Center offers members of the MIT community (students, faculty, staff, postdocs, and their partners and families) a wide range of resources to help balance work and personal life. Among the services provided through the Center are a 24/7 phone consultation and Web service, a faculty work/life Website, a lending library, oversight of MIT’s child care centers, coordination of new child care initiatives, in-home caregiver services, research on work/life policy issues, and more.

To learn more about the resources at the Center, including those specifically for faculty, visit the Website or e-mail.
