Policies & Procedures

Policies & Procedures (P&P) sets forth policies and procedures that apply broadly to MIT faculty, other academic staff, research staff, non-academic staff, and, for some policies, to unpaid affiliates and other members of the MIT community. This manual includes definitions of faculty and staff appointments, addresses research and other major areas of Institute activity, and states general standards of conduct. In the event of any discrepancy between the policies and an applicable union agreement, the union agreement will govern.

These policies and procedures constitute a living document and are subject to change by the Institute. Major changes are communicated to the faculty and staff. Faculty and staff members should be familiar with these policies and procedures and changes therein. When policy changes occur, they may be found on the Policies and Procedures Update history.
