Have an opinion? PTAC wants to hear it!

The Presidential Transition Advisory Cabinet (PTAC), made up of students from around the Institute, has been charged with providing advice and student perspective to MIT’s 17th President, L. Rafael Reif, as he develops a vision for the Institute’s future. To do this, we need to hear from you.

During our 6-month process we will cover several topics, and our first is the MIT educational experience. To collect student input we have created a concise, accessible, and anonymous form for you to complete. We are also committed to holding one-on-one meetings with any student at MIT that wants to share their perspective. You can find all of this information on our website at http://web.mit.edu/committees/ptac/ and access the web form by clicking on the “Feedback” tab of the website. On this form, you will have as much, or as little, space as you need to get your voice heard on several umbrella topics having to do with education at MIT. After submitting your responses, you will have the option of being contacted by a PTAC member to follow up with you and get your input on other PTAC initiatives.

Thank you in advance for your time, energy, and guidance in offering the student perspective. We will be turning to you several times in the months ahead, and hope we can join together in shaping the future direction of the Institute.

—The Presidential Transition Advisory Committee
