As part of its mission, the Council on Family and Work monitors the quality of life at MIT and shares its impressions with senior administrators, key committees, and the larger community.
Dear MIT Community
Earlier this spring, the MIT community responded in record numbers to our request for feedback on your work-life environment. The Council on Family and Work's primary objectives for the survey were to identify and evaluate family and work related issues and to develop recommendations for MIT's senior administration.
We are gratified by the strong response from our community, and are beginning the next phase of work for the Council -- writing a formal report and formulating recommendations that can improve the well-being of our community, helping ensure MIT is a place where we have fulfilling and productive professional and personal lives.
While that report will not be complete until the Fall term, we want to take this opportunity to present some highlights from the survey, available now from http://web.mit.edu/ir/surveys/staffsurvey.html.
The findings include:
We thank you for your participation and look forward to reporting our recommendations to the community in the Fall.
