- About the MIT Outing Club
The MIT Outing Club (MITOC) is dedicated to helping the MIT and Cambridge community enjoy the great outdoors. MITOC members are students, staff, alumni, and faculty from MIT and the greater academic community who come together for year-round outdoor recreation in the company of other enthusiasts. MITOC members hike, climb, ski, bike, camp, tramp, backpack, snowshoe, and canoe to the highest, widest, most scenic vistas in New England and beyond!
About The Uprising:
The Uprising tells the story of the unprecedented behind-the-scenes effort that amassed irrefutable evidence of differential treatment of men and women on the MIT faculty in the 1990s. Featuring biologist Nancy Hopkins, the film chronicles the experiences of marginalization and discouragement that accompanied Hopkins’ research and highlights the steps a group of sixteen women faculty members took to make science more diverse and equitable at MIT.
The Uprising 2021 | 13 minutes | Documentary Short Directed by Ian Cheney and Sharon Shattuck | Produced in collaboration with the MIT Press.
