As we prepare for the arrival of the MIT class of 2023, we take a look back at some of the take-aways from the 2018 Survey of New Students. This survey is a snapshot of the incoming class before they arrived on campus, covering a range of topics, from high school experiences and college expectations to their life values and career goals for the future, shedding some light on common anxieties and concerns that incoming students share but also depicting who the incoming class is and hopes to become at MIT.

MIT News sat down with Lydia Snover, Director of Institutional Research, to discuss the collection, compilation, analysis, and distribution of data on people, money, and space at MIT and to talk about the history of Institutional Research at the Institute.
This fall, we introduced the Academic Climate Survey (ACS) in the pages of the Faculty Newsletter, and have been invited to share some early observations of faculty data with FNL readers. We are grateful to all the members of the MIT community who took the time to share their experiences with us in the Academic Climate Survey (ACS).
This fall, the Institutional Research (IR) group in the Provost’s Office will invite all faculty, staff, and students in academic departments and research units to participate in the MIT Academic Climate Survey.
