Fire Hydrant Award | MIT Professional Education

MIT Professional Education
Fire Hydrant Award

Jerome Wiesner, former president of MIT (1971-1980), described the experience of studying at MIT as “drinking from a fire hydrant.” Life and learning at MIT require firmness, constancy and a great deal of determination. Our professional programs attempt to instill these competencies.

Thus, the Fire Hydrant Award was born. It recognizes those who demonstrate their dedication to learning, their ability to put knowledge into practice, and their adherence to core MIT values, including: excellence, courage, humility, curiosity, a passion for solving problems, and a desire to improve society.
