Report Summary

MIT’s residential system should try to support three separate objectives: provide students with adequate, clean, comfortable housing and dining; create a comfortable, welcoming environment -- in other words, a home; and promote community by stimulating interaction among students, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni/ae. The Strategic Advisory Committee to the Chancellor summarizes these objectives with the shorthand: house, home, and community.
