About the Committee

The MIT Press Management Board was initially established in 1972 to supply guidance on management and fiscal matters. Its role has evolved to that of a board of directors of the Press within the Institute framework. The chair of the MIT Press Editorial Board and the Director of the MIT Press are ex-officio members, and the Management Board is chaired, ex officio, by the Director of Libraries, to whom the Press reports. The other members are MIT faculty and staff and outside publishers. The board ordinarily meets twice a year to review Press operations, to receive reports, and to consider strategy and policies for the future.

The MIT Press Management Board is a Standing Institute Committee that reports to the Provost.
