In Support of the ICEO Mission Statement

Paul E. Gray

MIT has been a prime continuously evolving educational enterprise charted by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for more than fifteen decades. It has seen several periods of serious introspection and change:

• Creation of the Radiation Laboratory (RLE).
• The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
• The creation of McCormick Hall and the opening of
other undergraduate dormitories enabled gender equity for all.
• The affiliation with the Whitehead Institute.

Professor Edmund Bertschinger – the Institute Community and Equity Officer (ICEO) – has proposed a mission statement for all who work, study, learn, live and grow at MIT:

The mission of the Institute Community and Equity Office is to advance a respectful and caring community that embraces diversity and empowers everyone to learn and do their best at MIT.

This work deserves the attention of everyone in this community.
