Gifts of alumni/ae and friends to establish a fund in memory of the late MIT Press Director, Frank Urbanowski, to support innovations in digital publishing at the MIT Press, along with the Press’ mission-driven publication efforts, by covering full or partial publication costs of high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarly books and journals.
Gifts to the fund will be used to grow our publication by women and under-represented groups in STEM fields, by enabling us to offer competitive advances to talented authors, cover the cost of high-quality production features (e.g. color images, or commissioned art) that may not be financially feasible otherwise, hire developmental editors to work with scholars who may not have the time or experience crafting general trade books, and ensure that these works reach the widest readership possible.
Gifts to the Muriel Cooper Publication Fund will be used to support the MIT Press’s publications in the fields of art, design, architecture, and visual culture. Funds received will help extend and reinforce Cooper’s legacy by subsidizing books, journals, and digital works that are technically innovative, intellectually rigorous, and visually challenging. Areas of support could include, but are not limited to, design, digitization, production, and acquisitions activities.
