Advancing Ideas to Global Impact by Empowering the Next Generation of Innovators

To mark the launch of the MIT Campaign for a Better World, groups of MIT leaders, faculty, alumni, and students gathered in May 2016 for a series of “Discover MIT” events to discuss in detail what the Campaign’s priorities mean in the context of MIT’s ongoing education, research, and innovation. How are we making a difference now? And what will this bold fundraising effort enable us to achieve?

In this video, panelists share some of the ways MIT is working to engineer ambitious new innovation ecosystems in Massachusetts and around the world that are suited to our times and our students.
