Task Force on Community Engagement in 2030 Planning
The Task Force on Community Engagement in 2030 Planning was appointed in August 2012 by Provost Chris Kaiser and asked to provide guidance on upcoming decisions related to campus development within the context of the capital planning process known as MIT 2030.
This is the final report of MIT's Institute-wide Planning Task Force, which was charged with identifying opportunities for efficiency and cost reduction that do not sacrifice MIT's core mission. It represents a concerted, inclusive, sustained effort to strengthen MIT by improving operations; preserve MIT's financial stability; and enhance its global leadership in research and education.
