New and Enhanced Resources for Associate Advisors

Associate Advisors (AAs) are MIT sophomores, juniors, and seniors who provide academic support and resources to first-year students. Matched with a faculty advisor, they provide the student perspective on MIT academics and student life to a small group of 6-10 advisees. Since associate advisors are busy students themselves, they need access to quick-and-easy to use resources.

Introducing the Experiential Learning Student Ambassadors

The Office of Experiential Learning recently hired its first cohort of Experiential Learning Student Ambassadors. The group includes 11 undergraduate students from a variety of majors and MIT communities who have collectively completed Experiential Learning Opportunities (ELOs) through UROP, MISTI, PKG, Edgerton, D-Lab, Sandbox, and more!

TEJI Establishes Commission on the Future of Higher Education in Prison

The Educational Justice Institute (TEJI) at MIT has partnered with the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) to establish the Commission on the Future of Higher Education in Prison, co-chaired by Lee Perlman (TEJI) and Michael Thomas (NEBHE).

Campus Preview Weekend 2023

The Admissions Office is pleased to announce that Campus Preview Weekend (CPW) will be held April 13 through April 16. We know that many OVC departments are already planning to play a role in hosting events or open houses, and we are most appreciative! We encourage you to collaborate with department heads, academic administrators, and others to ensure we have the best CPW yet.
