The MIT Work-Life Center fosters a welcoming and supportive environment for the rich diversity of people who live, work, and study at MIT—and for their family members as well. Our policy and advocacy work at the Institute is a catalyst for change, facilitating expansion of child care facilities, creating special reports on teens and young adults, and developing work-life resources for MIT's global mission.
Resources for Times of Crisis
The Work-Life Center has created a pdf of campus and community “Resources to Help Cope in Times of Crisis (PDF),” to assist everyone in the MIT community with the marathon violence and all traumatic life events.
New Child Care Center
MIT, with oversight from the MIT Work-Life Center, plans to build a new child care center that will almost double child care available on campus. The new facility, at 219 Vassar Street, is expected to open in late summer 2013. You can view more details in the Vassar news office announcement and Vassar child care summary (which includes registration information).
