Message from the Chair

Preventing Student Complaints: MIT Rules About Managing Classes

Lily L. Tsai

As we begin the 2021-2022 academic year, let me first express my appreciation for all that you are doing to fulfill our educational mission. It is never easy work at the best of times, and it has been extraordinary to see you adapt and innovate in the face of previously unimaginable challenges over the last three semesters.

If you are teaching this semester, please take a moment to read through the following reminders for Fall subjects, as we are returning to the regular Rules and Regulations of the Faculty. To avoid unnecessary headaches arising from student complaints about violations of these regulations after the semester begins, I ask for your help in checking that your subjects comply with these policies on grading, assignments, and exams.
