Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)


Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the mission of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. The Institute is committed to generating, disseminating, and preserving knowledge, and to working with others to bring this knowledge to bear on the world's great challenges. MIT is dedicated to providing its 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. We seek to develop in each member of the MIT community the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the betterment of humankind.

The arts at MIT connect creative minds across disciplines and encourage a lifetime of exploration and self-discovery.  They are rooted in experimentation, risk-taking and imaginative problem-solving.  The arts strengthen MIT’s commitment to the aesthetic, human, and social dimensions of research and innovation.  Artistic knowledge and creation exemplify our motto — mens et manus, mind and hand.  The arts are essential to MIT’s mission to build a better society and meet the challenges of the 21st century.
