Quest Diversity Statement

The faculty, researchers, students, and staff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Quest for Intelligence affirm a commitment to protect and nurture, first and foremost, the mental and physical well-being of each member of our community. A core value of the Quest for Intelligence is a commitment to diversity, which connotes an awareness and acceptance of the value and strength derived from engaging the richness of multiple cultures, races, abilities, socio-economic backgrounds, genders, national origins, religions, sexual orientations, and skin color, among other attributes. The full potential and impact of our scholarship, teaching and learning, knowledge creation, innovation, and service can only be realized in an environment where people are supported and valued for their humanity, without prejudice, and where inclusion, collaboration, and sharing are core principles.
