Better World

MIT’s community is defined by its values: Excellence. Meritocracy. Boldness. Humility. Curiosity. A passion for difficult problems. And a strong desire to do good for?society.?

From the very beginning, MIT has been a magnificent human machine for inventing the future: not an ivory tower, but a laboratory for brilliant minds geared to tackling real-world problems and answering the biggest questions. We open our doors to the most talented people on the planet, no matter their origins, and we position them for impact.

In a sense, MIT’s greatest invention may be itself —?an unusual concentration of unusual talent, forever reinventing itself on a mission to make a better world. That invention is powered by individuals: a global community of educators, researchers, and learners with different perspectives but a shared commitment to serving humanity.

Digital technology is unleashing the greatest changes to how we teach —?and who has the opportunity?to learn — since the invention of the printing press.?MIT proudly offers its course content to anyone in the world with an internet connection.?No matter where you are, you can find ways to become part of MIT.

You can apply for admission?or apply for a job. Take an MITx class?or attend an event.?You can even?make a gift?or help us?solve?a problem of global importance.

We invite you to join us in building a better world.?
