Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Advancing a respectful and caring community that embraces diversity and empowers everyone to learn and do their best at MIT


We're glad you're here. The MIT SHASS program for Belonging, Achievement, and Composition is part of the MIT program coordinated by the Institute Community and Equity Office (ICEO). We're partnering with MIT to continue practical progress toward living MIT’s shared values of excellence, belonging, openness, integrity, and mutual respect. 

Strategic Action Plan

In 2022, MIT released a strategic action plan for belonging, achievement, and composition. Initiatives outlined in the plan build on the Institute's culture of excellence and enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion within the MIT community. Learn more!
