Demographic Analysis of University of Phoenix and
National Higher Education
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • 4.5 Outside Professional Activities
  • MIT Policies and Procedures
  • The Institute believes that its educational
    program and effective teaching in all its aspects
    can flourish only when sustained by continuous,
    active participation of its faculty in research,
    enriched in many cases by interaction with
    industry, business, government, and other
    activities and institutions of our society. This
    interaction, including outside consulting service
    to and research for government and industry, is
    of greatest value when it contributes
    significantly to the public welfare, offers an
    opportunity for professional challenge and
    growth, or otherwise enhances the effectiveness
    of a faculty member's service to the Institute.
  • 4.5.2 Faculty and Students
  • Part-time involvement of students in the outside
    professional activities of faculty may, under
    certain conditions, offer the potential for
    substantial benefits to the education of the
    student. In each case of such involvement, the
    faculty member should obtain prior approval from
    the department head after discussion with the
    department head and student. In this context,
    involvement means any substantive activity,
    whether paid or unpaid.
