Remembering Margaret MacVicar

Margaret L. A. MacVicar '64 was a cherished educator and innovator at MIT. She worked for diversity in admission and implemented changes in humanities and science requirements. Professor MacVicar founded the popular Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and served as MIT's first Dean for Undergraduate Education until her death in 1991. Since 1992, members of the MIT faculty are selected as Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellows "to recognize faculty members who have profoundly influenced our students through their sustained and significant contributions to teaching and curriculum development." View Remembering Margaret MacVicar in its entirety at the MITVideo Productions collection at TechTV.
