About the Committee
July 2023: The Committee on Race and Diversity is now the Institute Council on Belonging, Achievement, and Composition
MIT is committed to creating and maintaining a culturally and racially diverse environment, but this diversity is hollow unless the individuals that comprise MIT can communicate with each other. The Committee on Race and Diversity's job is to make sure communication happens, demonstrating MIT's high-level recognition that numerical diversity is necessary, but not sufficient, for a vital campus.
The Committee on Race and Diversity is a Standing Institute Committee that reports to the President.
