Perspectives on Teaching, Learning, and Living

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 discuss some of the ways MIT is working to transform education both on and off the MIT campus, and to enhance the MIT student experience.
