MIT Town Hall: A virtual community gathering

On Tuesday, April 7, President Reif will host the first virtual gathering of the MIT community.

In the course of 75 minutes, a dozen faculty and administrative leaders will address the topics that community members asked about most often, including concerns of staff and students. Other subjects will include MIT’s financial situation, how we’re thinking about the future in terms of research and academics – and how the people of MIT are helping in the larger fight against Covid-19.
