  1. Feedback to John Charles, V.P. IS&T on Guiding Principles document for IT at MIT.

    A working draft of our proposed Guiding Principles document for IT at MIT is attached. So far, the draft reflects feedback from IS&T Sr Staff, the MIT IT Leaders Group, members of the VP of IS&T Search Committee, plus a few in-progress-review comments from members of the ITGC. Per John’s request, please treat the draft as a work-in-progress — it’s not ready for distribution to a wider audience at this stage in its development.

  2. Brief update/presentation on the work of the Institute Working Group on MIT Education and Facilities – Lori Breslow, Director TLL

    The intent would be to identify key themes that may be emerging from this Working Group (Chaired by Prof. Karen Wilcox) that may be candidates for institutional experiments/projects.
