Statement on the Role of Diversity

A diverse student body is and has long been critical to the educational mission of MIT. We are committed to providing our students “with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery with the support and intellectual stimulation of a diverse campus community.” 1

This statement has been adapted from the CUAFA Statement on the Role of Diversity in MIT’s Educational Mission found at:

Office of Graduate Education CONVERGE program
The CONVERGE mission is to increase the presence of underrepresented and underserved students in MIT’s graduate programs. To achieve this goal, CONVERGE hosts a graduate school preview weekend on the MIT campus during the fall for select participants who will be strong applicants to MIT graduate programs.  More information on COVERGE may be found at this link:  CONVERGE
