2015 CAMIT Trip to Venice


Since 1994, CAMIT members have participated in arts trips to foreign and domestic cities. Private collections, backstage visits, “hardhat” tours, and convivial meals are highlights of every trip, but perhaps the most treasured parts of each excursion are the friendships made and sustained between CAMIT members.

Recent destinations include the Netherlands, San Francisco, Western Massachusetts, and Venice, Italy.

The Council for the Arts at MIT (CAMIT)


In 1972, Jerome B. Wiesner, the 13th president of MIT, established the Council to strengthen the arts at MIT and to expand arts funding. As MIT president, Wiesner transformed the Institute, recognizing that being the best in science and engineering was not enough–that tomorrow’s leaders also need to integrate the arts and humanities into their thinking about engineering, science, technology and policy. For the celebration of the 40th anniversary of CAMIT’s founding, the Council commissioned a short film about its history.

Since 1972, CAMIT has submitted an annual report to the President outlining the accomplishments and activities of the year.
