Hockfield has served as president since December 2004 and will continue to serve until the next president takes office.

The picnic will be held from noon until 2 p.m. on Killian Court; all faculty, staff and students are invited for food and fun and a chance to say thank you to Dr. Hockfield for her leadership of MIT.
