News corrections


Last Thursday’s print edition of The Tech unintentionally featured an inaccurate headline for the article detailing MIT’s 2018 commencement speaker, Sheryl Sandberg.

The Tech deeply regrets this production error and means no offense to Ms. Sandberg.

He did not say, “What did you do when the oceans were rising and superstorms wiped out cities leading to mass destruction?” Rather, he said, "What role did you play when seas overtook coastlines and redrew continental maps, and superstorms inundated entire cities and led to mass migrations?”
