The MIT Faculty as a whole plays many key roles in the governance of the Institute, including stewardship of academic and educational matters, through its standing committees, monthly meetings, and procedures defined in Rules and Regulations of the Faculty. These web pages provide related information and resources. A broader set of resources for members of the faculty is available on Faculty Concierge, a portal site sponsored by the Provost’s Office.
