MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering has pledged to develop and implement actions that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in our students, faculty, and staff. As a community, we are committed to celebrating diversity and rejecting racism or prejudice in any form.

This page offers an overview of the various activities we are taking as a department to build a community that is actively anti-racist, works towards correcting systemic and institutional racism, and treats every individual with respect, dignity, kindness, and fairness. It will be updated as additional actions are implemented.
