What Is MIT Reads?

MIT Reads is an all-MIT reading experience that aims to build community and foster understanding. Our goal is to bring the campus community together through the act of reading.

The details:

  • Each year’s selected readings will center on a theme representing an important campus issue or priority. For 2016-17, the theme is diversity and inclusion.
  • Throughout the academic year, the Libraries will collaborate with various campus partners to select readings, and hold discussions open to all community members.
  • We encourage all MIT students, staff, faculty, and affiliates to join us.
