Committee on Education


The Committee on Education administrates programs and advocates on behalf of students to improve the undergraduate educational experience. In Fall 2016, CoE projects included investigating grade transparency at MIT, improving advising, reporting and resolving violations of end-of-term regulations, and funding student-faculty dinners.


The CoE manages two ongoing projects to improve the MIT academic experience: student-faculty dinners (and now, coffees!) and violations reporting. If you want to get to know your professor a little better in a more comfortable setting, consider taking them to dinner or coffee on the UA. If you are concerned because you think a policy in one of your classes violates MIT's rules of the faculty, we can advocate on your behalf.

Curious about end of term policy and what constitutes a violation? Visit here.
