School Information
"The MIT community is driven by a shared purpose: to make a better world through education, research, and innovation. We are fun and quirky, elite but not elitist, inventive and artistic, obsessed with numbers, and welcoming to talented people regardless of where they come from." The university enrolls 11,500 students and employs 2,015 faculty, across its 30 departments (in five schools and one college).
