MIT is truly a global university.

At MIT, we harness streams of converging ideas by creating new interdisciplinary centers, programs and labs with global participants - working together to solve the world's problems.

MIT's global involvement takes place on nearly every continent, and transpires at many levels-from individual faculty collaborations to institutional partnerships; and it materializes in many forms-from teaching and research, to internships and work, to public service and outreach efforts.

If you are a member of the MIT community, add your international activities to the database. Whether it's building wheelchairs in Ghana or teaching in Taiwan, we want to know how you're sharing knowledge with the world.

Add your activity to the database, or email us with your questions. We encourage you to think of all of your educational and scholarly work in a global context, and in a way that supports the open sharing of ideas and information in support of common goals.
