The Learning International Networks Consortium (LINC) is an MIT-managed international initiative that began in 2001 and is operated by a growing team of MIT faculty, student and staff volunteers. LINC’s premise is simple and compelling: With today’s computer and telecommunications technologies, every young person can have a quality education regardless of his or her place of birth.
