Human Health & Well-being

MIT recognizes that the health and well-being of its students, staff, and faculty are intimately linked to both the natural and built environment on campus. Conditions such as healthy indoor and outdoor air quality, green spaces, nutritious food, pedestrian and bike-friendly streets, and a stable climate can enhance health and social cohesion when integrated into campus planning for sustainability.   MIT has made great strides in developing many of these areas –from its Community Wellness programs to its cycle track bike lanes – and the Office of Sustainability will continue to strengthen this relationship between sustainability and a healthy community through research, education, and planning.
