MIT’s Reports to the President are a compilation of annual reports from the Institute’s academic and administrative units. Each report summarizes the year’s goals, major accomplishments, honors and awards, and future plans.

Published in the spring, the Reports to the President are a major resource for understanding MIT’s current development. Collectively, the volumes represent the starting point for any research into the history of the Institute.
