Established in 2014, the mission of the MIT Sloan Alumni Board is to create a strong, supportive, and visible global community that benefits alumni, students, and the School. Comprised of approximately 30 MIT Sloan alumni from around the world, the Alumni Board is currently focused on five key working areas, Admission, Clubs, Curated Content and Communications, Dean's Circle and Philanthropic Participation. Through the combined work of the leadership group and the five committees, the Alumni Board seeks to create a strong and supportive global community where every one of us values and benefits from the MIT Sloan network.
The board meets in person and on campus one to two times per year. In addition, the committees meet on an ad hoc basis to address their charges. Please check back to learn more about the activities of the MIT Sloan Alumni Board.

This committee is working closely with the MIT Sloan
Admissions team to determine how alumni can play a more strategic and
influential role in the admissions cycle.
This committee is addressing how best to work with alumni in areas where there are no existing MIT Sloan clubs, recommend where there would be benefit from creating a new MIT Sloan club, and where, and how, the School could create better visibility and representation for MIT Sloan within existing MIT clubs.
This committee is looking into the School's available communication
and content, considering developing needs and determining how to better
streamline and target alumni as a whole and/or in segments.
This committee has partnered with the communications and
annual giving offices to build a campaign that will aim to elevate awareness
and make the case for support at the Dean's Circle level.
This committee is looking into an overall strategy for programs,
including recruitment, sustaining of class agents and reunion giving
volunteers, and recommending new volunteer models, such as corporate champions,
as well as helping the School increase solicitation effectiveness and build a
stronger culture of philanthropy.
Invest in the next generation of principled, innovative leaders and support the future of MIT Sloan.
