Merlinda holds the role of educators in our society to the highest regard and believes knowledge is a public good. In support of these values, she is a sponsor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Mirror Site (MSP) & OpenCourseWare (OCW) Programs.  

OCW is a program that publishes free semester long courses on hundreds of beginner and advanced level topics. The MSP is a free program that brings a self-updating, on-premise, online catalog of all OCW courses to your school. This is to ensure students have access to and can reliably stream these videos even if they lack a reliable internet connection at home or school.  Additionally, OCW also supports teachers by sharing open-sourced teaching methods used by MIT professors. The MSP opens up a wide range of learning opportunities to your students and fellow teachers, click the link below for more information.
