About Membership Benefits

Membership in one or all three of the J-WEL Collaboratives provides the opportunity for sustainable capacity building as members develop education programs, curriculum, and research in exchange with MIT faculty leaders, access MIT’s resources and research, and advise J-WEL on future research priorities. This outcome-focused Lab invites educators from around the world to work through their educational challenges and deliver actionable solutions alongside MIT faculty, staff, and fellow J-WEL members.

Membership fees support the research, events, and activities of the Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab. There are several tiers of membership to fit an organization’s needs and goals: Affiliate, Sustaining, Comprehensive, and Charter. For more on membership benefits and fees, contact jwel -at- mit -dot- edu.
