An article published on Nov. 29 incorrectly stated that the Dalai Lama has visited the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT three times. He has only visited twice. The same article also incorrectly said that Ethics Initiative talks involve approximately 15 students — it is actually closer to 25–30. In addition, these talks are made available on MIT World, not MIT OpenCourseware.

An article published Tuesday on the Commencement speaker incorrectly stated that the Undergraduate Association vice president, the 2012 Class Council vice president, and the Graduate Student Council vice president participated in the committee’s recommendation for the commencement speaker. Vice presidents do not sit on the subcommittee that offers speaker recommendations to President Susan J. Hockfield, but they do sit on the larger Commencement Committee.
