A front-page caption on Friday misspelled the surname of Dean of Engineering Subra Suresh ScD ’81 in the first sentence, while spelling it correctly in the second. It is Suresh, not Suresch.
A story Friday about the appointment of acting Dean of Engineering Cynthia Barnhart PhD ’88 mischaracterized the administrative classification of Transportation@MIT. Transportation@MIT is an “initiative,” not a “center.” A center is a administrative term at MIT that implies a degree of formal recognition and status (staff, budgets, etc.) that initiatives do not have.
