Signs of the times: MIT’s New Provost – Venezuelan, Led MIT’s Online Education


From the Chronicle of Higher Education: born in Venezuela from a poor family, PhD from Stanford, former director of MIT’s online education program. This appointment certainly evidences the start of a new era for higher education. Felicidades, L. Rafael! I am proud to be Latinamerican.
