Mission & Strategy

MindHandHeart is a coalition of students, faculty, and staff with fresh insights, new ideas, and diverse perspectives working collaboratively and strategically to strengthen the fabric of our MIT community.

MHH is a community building enterprise, building community through values centered programming and department support.

  1. Our Innovation Fund seeding novel approaches to community building and fostering a sense of belonging through passionate students as their innovative ideas develop.
  2. By spearheading the adoption of the MIT Values Statement, which is pivotal in building a sense of shared purpose, expectations, and accountability via institutional habits, rhythms, rituals, and communications.
  3. Our strategic partnerships are designed to connect MHH with other culture-shaping initiatives promoting respect, health, and our shared humanity.
  4. And, our Department Support Program, an effort in several academic departments to share
    successes and promising practices that enhance academic climates across MIT.   

To build community and belonging through programming rooted in MIT's Values, MindHandHeart is tapping into the creativity of the entire MIT community to spur action and positively shape our culture. Over time, we aim for awareness of our "heart" to be fully alive on our campus; inseparable from "mind and hand" and equally valued as a component of our success in making a better world.
