Diversity Statement

MIT Music and Theater Arts is united in our pursuit of artistic, intellectual, creative and technical excellence; this requires intense focus and dedication by all members of our community.  We value diversity and practice inclusion with regard to identities, backgrounds, opinions and beliefs. Because we see our students as whole people, we prioritize their mental, emotional and physical health above the quality of their work. This ethos extends to both our advisory and pedagogical relationships.  Diversity, wellness and inclusion are likewise central to our curriculum and hiring; we are therefore committed to recruiting a diverse faculty and staff to enhance the educational experience of the students we serve.
