Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Founded in 1861, it is best known for its science and technology departments, but it also has notable programs in fields like economics, management, and political science.

A number of early Libertarian Party activists, most notably founder David Nolan, were graduates of MIT. Prior to the founding of the LP, the student newspaper Ergo provided a libertarian / Objectivist perspective to the MIT and Harvard campuses.
