Every four years, MIT administers an Academic Climate Survey to understand the academic and research environment at The Institute.

This survey is:

- Anonymous
- Looking for candid opinions about the environment in your department
- Asking about factors that affect your ability to have a fulfilling and productive time at MIT.

Our mission is to create a safe and inviting community within the MIT Mathematics Department. If you have any feedback or suggestions on what we could improve, please contact diversitycomm@math.mit.edu. Your feedback is confidential and will be taken seriously.
