II (5). Community Well-Being

MIT expects that members of the MIT community will not engage in behavior that endangers their own sustained effectiveness or that has serious ramifications for their own physical and mental health, safety, welfare, academic well-being, professional obligations, or for that of others. In situations where an individual student’s physical illness or emotional difficulties affect not only the student, but also others in the community, it is the Institute’s responsibility to consider the well- being of the community as well as the individuals in care decisions.
