MIT estimates that thousands of MIT students – undergraduate and graduate – will be eligible for some form of relief thanks to the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund program.
Task Force 2021 and Beyond is focusing on refining the over 50 ideas generated in the first phase and planning their implementation. The task force was launched last May to develop the blueprints for building a better MIT in a post-Covid world.
