Graduate and international community

The Office of the Dean for Graduate Education sponsors many opportunities for community involvement, often in collaboration with other Institute organizations. The ODGE’s support for community involvement as “opportunities for priceless encounters” reflects the Dean’s unwavering commitment to community as one aspect of MIT’s educational triad of academics, research, and community.

International community resources and support are available at the International Students Office (ISO); follow news, events, and other updates on the ISO Facebook page. Additional health and counseling support for MIT’s international community members can be found on MIT Medical’s international dashboard.

The ODGE Diversity Initiatives team provides support for MIT’s thriving community of students from underrepresented (American Indian, African American, Hispanic American, and Native Hawaiian) or underserved (low socioeconomic and first generation college) backgrounds. Follow news, events, and other updates on the MIT Grad Diversity Facebook page.

The occasions for contributing to graduate community at MIT are unlimited, whether socializing, integrating academic and social aspects of graduate life, appreciating the arts, or looking for ways to improve communications and outreach to unique constituencies. Explore MIT’s student resources: Activities, Arts and Recreation page for many links on topics from student government, to diversity events, to lists of student organizations and recreational activities.
