As we begin the first day of classes at MIT, there is always a sense of excitement and possibilty. Each spring semester for the past 8 years, Radius has been co-sponsoring an undergraduate seminar with the MIT Department of Philosophy, under the leadership of Professor Sally Haslanger. The seminar, Being, Thinking, Doing (Or Not!): Ethics in Your Life, is a weekly class where students discuss ethical issues over dinner.
MIT Takes a Stance

Last Friday, Donald Trump signed an Executive Order on immigration that shocked the world. Many of us in the MIT community were galvanized into action and joined the public protest in Copley Square on Sunday afternoon.
How We Engage
Wednesday, January 25, 2017
Last Saturday, the world witnessed an unprecedented display of resistance and solidarity. It will come as no surprise to our constituents that our mission's foundation is grounded in the belief that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and that human rights are meant for every single one of us. The marches around the world were also grounded in this belief. As we face the realities around us, it's important to stay engaged and to know that your voice can be heard.

Climate Change: Ethics in Action, the large forum that Radius co-hosted on November 17th, has provided a robust launch for further action at MIT. We've received many emails following the program and the subsequent article published in The Tech on November 22.
Radius (and the Technology and Culture Forum) has a long tradition of partnering with a wide array of departments and programs here at MIT. These partnerships have enriched our programming and widen our reach to members of the MIT community and beyond.
One of our most robust partnerships is with the Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center. From encouraging MIT community members to volunteer locally to assisting in creating programs that help students think about ethical frameworks in their lives, our relationship with the PKGCenter is rich one.
Hack Your Mind is Back!

Greetings! My name is Paul McAlister and I am a 3rd year divinity student at the Episcopal Divinity School in Harvard Square. As an intern for Radius and the Episcopal Ministry at MIT, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many MIT community members, particularly professors and staff who are involved in program ideas for Radius.
Happy New Year!
Monday, September 5, 2016
I love this time of year! A new academic year is beginning and with that comes the wonderful sense of new beginnings, possibility and adventure, accompanied by the normal concerns of time, workload and fatigue. Although my life centers around an acadmemic schedule, I haven't been an official student for many years. However, that exciting sense of a "new year beginning" never fades.
