The Ad Hoc Working Group on Free Expression is seeking your input as they prepare to review MIT’s current statement and related policies on the free and open exchange of ideas, to recommend any changes that may be needed to existing statements or guidance, and to suggest principles or processes for decision making.
At MIT and at US universities more broadly, freedom of expression is a closely held ideal and core to the university environment, but some of us may not always feel free to openly express our views. I’d like to pose some questions to members of the Working Group to open the discussion and look forward to hearing the Group's thoughts and ideas.
Date and time: Thursday, February 16 from 12:00-1:00pm

Career Development: Assess Your Values
Identifying your personal values is an important part of a successful career plan. Most people who pursue work that is congruent with their values feel satisfied and successful in their careers. Living and working out of alignment with your values can be a source of stress, discontent and poor career decision making. In this workshop we will explore what is the current state of play with you and your values, primarily in the context of work.
- To define what you value most and set the stage for behaviors, goals and performance more closely aligned with your ideal self
- To define factors that will affect your future choices
- To define the intensity of your feelings about these factors
- To determine areas of value conflict and/or congruence
- To apply learning to future decisions
Date and time: Thursday, January 20 from 12:00-1:00pm
