“J-WEL is a major addition to our campus that is enabling us to actually carry out the biggest aspiration we have, to educate as many people in the world as possible.”

- L. Rafael Reif, President of MIT

“Enabling individuals to do their very best and reach their full potential, whatever their background, is a key priority for Community Jameel and the world. That is exactly why we are establishing the Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab with MIT.”

- Fady Mohammed Jameel, President of Community Jameel International

“Through J-WEL, we will forge new and long-lasting engagements as we learn, share and train together, using the assets developed at MIT as well as by leveraging the community convened by J-WEL. ”

- Sanjay Sarma, MIT Vice President for Open Learning
