DSL Speaker Series: Professor Daniel Jackson, Portraits of Resilience

Thursday, March 08, 2018 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Building W15: MIT Chapel

The Division of Student Life and Institute Community & Equity Office are hosting a talk by Prof. Daniel Jackson, who will discuss his recently published Portraits of Resilience. Prof. Jackson's work is a compilation of personal stories of MIT students, faculty, and staff who have grappled with daunting challenges, and found ways to overcome them and succeed, even in the fast-paced, demanding environment of MIT. There are some remarkable lessons for each of us in these stories, all of which have been published in the MIT newspaper The Tech over the past few years.

This event is free and open to the MIT Community and friends. Immediately after the talk, there will be an informal reception with Daniel, as well as an opportunity to purchase copies of the book from the MIT Press.
