Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Online Module

Information for Graduate Students

In addition to addressing the important topics of sexual assault, harassment, and relationship violence, MIT is also committed to advancing a respectful and caring community that embraces diversity, equity and inclusion and empowers everyone to learn and do their best. MIT embraces a welcoming and inclusive campus culture – and building that culture is our responsibility as members of the MIT community. MIT offers Diversity, Equity, Inclusion: Stud Pt 1 (DEI), an online training that starts with common understanding of terms, learning to identify unconscious bias, and knowing what resources we have available at MIT.

This course is required for all new, incoming graduate students. Part 1 of this online program will open on Monday, June 15 and should be completed by Monday, July 27. The course will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. You may complete it in multiple sittings. You will be prompted to complete the brief Part 2 of the program in October. Incoming students who fail to complete this program will be subject to a registration hold in the following Spring term.

For more information about addressing issues of diversity, equity and inclusion, please see the resources provided by the Institute Community and Equity Office (ICEO) site.

If you have any issues accessing this course or questions about it, please email trainmod@mit.edu.
