About Us

The Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (J-WEL) was launched as a joint initiative between MIT and Community Jameel, an independent, global organization advancing science to help communities thrive in a rapidly changing world. The lab was named in honor of the late Abdul Latif Jameel, the founder of Abdul Latif Jameel, and father of MIT alumnus and founder and chairman of Community Jameel, Mohammed Jameel KBE.

J-WEL engages educators, technologists, policymakers, societal leaders, employers, and employees through online and in-person collaborations, workshops, research, and information-sharing events. J-WEL member organizations work with MIT faculty and staff to address global opportunities for scalable change in education.
