Mind, Hand, World: The MIT Center for International Studies

The MIT Center for International Studies undertakes research, teaching, international education, and public and policy engagement on a broad range of global issues. The major programs are: MISTI, the ground-breaking initiative to send MIT students to work in labs in 10 countries. Now in its 25th year, MISTI serves 300 students annually; Security Studies Program, a world-renowned teaching and research program emphasizing U.S. strategy; Program on Emerging Technologies, innovative research linking scientists, engineers, and historians to understand globalization’s winners and losers; and Middle East, including the Jerusalem 2050 project, cosponsored with DUSP, and the Persian Gulf Initiative, which focuses on Iran and Iraq in workshops and public outreach. CIS includes some forty MIT faculty, mainly from political science and urban studies and planning, plus another forty affiliate scholars from other institutions, thirty staff, and about eight visiting fellows. In addition to the MISTI student contingent, graduate students are involved with every program.
