About the Committee

The MIT Press Management Board was established in 1972 to supply guidance on management and strategy to the Press Director. Its role has evolved to that of a non-fiduciary board of advisors for 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 Director of the Press reports. The other members are MIT faculty and senior administrators, and outside members of the business community. The board ordinarily meets twice a year to review Press operations, to review reports, and to discuss strategy and policies for the future.

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