Who We Are
The MIT Refugee Action Hub (ReACT) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an institute-wide effort to develop global education programs that target the needs of underserved communities, including refugees, migrants and economically disadvantaged populations. We believe education is the best tool to help underserved learners achieve their goals, giving them a democratic platform to leverage their talents, access a professional career, and create positive change in their lives and communities. Developed by MIT faculty and staff, MIT ReACT’s programs follow an agile approach to continuous education. They combine classroom instruction, online learning, and practical experience to help students gain advanced competencies in key areas, such as computer and data science, statistics, and innovation, as well as creative and critical thinking. Through providing personal and digital academic support and connecting participants to paid internships, ReACT’s learning model aims to help learners from underserved communities everywhere advance academic and professional careers.
