"We know so much about the technology of the world. But what we need now is a new technology of the heart."
— Mel King, DUSP Professor Emeritus, Radius Program in February 2013

At Radius, our mission is to challenge uncritical narratives of progress and to provide space for considering how our important work in science and technology might better contribute to the common good. 

We have three primary means of doing so: 

  1. Public programming on ethical issues in our professional fields and at MIT itself;
  2. Individual student mentoring and the creation of communities of reflection and moral support; 
  3. The Leitch Ethics Seminars, curricular opportunities for MIT students to consider ethics in their daily lives. 
Radius is an affiliated program in MIT's Office of Religious, Spiritual and Ethical Life and was formerly known as The Technology and Culture Forum at MIT.
