MIT Outreach Directory
The MIT Public Service Center has built and maintains the MIT Outreach Directory on behalf of the MIT community. We created this directory to facilitate access to the wide range of MIT outreach programs. We acknowledge that this directory may contain only some of the outreach programs available at MIT and is not an exhaustive listing.
How we define outreach
While there are different interpretations of what constitutes outreach, in the interest of practicality, we have defined it to be for purposes of this directory:
- Outreach must in some way reach outwards toward the external community. This means that the program or resource is open to either
- public participation or use or
- MIT participants who partner with community entities as part of the program or resource.
- Secondly, outreach must be active and open. Outreach of this sort can be applied for, participated in, or used by community members.
- Lastly, outreach must be ongoing or cyclical in some way. This excludes, for example, a one-time lecture but can include lecture series as long as it satisfies the above criteria.
We seek to enable the public to enjoy the wide range of outreach programs offered by MIT. We also seek to enable the MIT community to understand that range of programming and provide a mechanism for sharing their outreach opportunities with the public.
This directory is made possible through a donation from Tabetha and Brian Hinman and other generous donors.
