FSILG panel issues draft

A draft report from the Task Force on Fraternities, Sororities and Independent Living Groups, which has been examining the challenges and opportunities facing the FSILG community, has been submitted to President Charles M. Vest. The task force was formed to frame recommendations for strengthening and sustaining the FSILG system.

The draft report is under review by the principal stakeholders. A final report will be circulated to the MIT community in the fall.

"I am very grateful to the task force for its dedication, preserverance and thoughtful recommendations, which provide MIT with a pathway forward," President Vest said of the draft report.

Recommendations in the report included:

  • Improve communications and working relations among students, administration and alumni
  • Improve the financial health of the FSILGs and establish quality-of-life and infrastructure standards
  • Develop more effective recruiting practices
  • Develop effective roles and responsibilities for all stakeholders
  • Extend and more effectively manage the transition period
  • Include FSILGs in long-term planning for campus housing.
