About

The MIT Faculty Newsletter (FNL) is a publication of the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Since MIT faculty have neither a faculty senate nor faculty union nor related professional organization, the FNL plays an important role at MIT in providing an independent forum for expression of faculty views and concerns. The Editorial Board of the MIT Faculty Newsletter is elected by Institute-wide electronic vote of the current faculty of MIT and all emeritus faculty.

All opinions expressed are those of the individual authors, with the exception of the Editorials, which reflect views of the Editorial Subcommittee for that issue, or the Editorial Board of the FNL as a whole.

Although faculty are given preference, submission of articles is open to all members of the MIT Community.

For further information see Policies and Procedures of the MIT Faculty Newsletter.
