  • Alumni Board

    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 34 MIT Sloan alumni from around the world, the Alumni Board is currently focused on two key working areas: 

    Alumni Network Committee: This committee seeks to strengthen bonds between alumni and the School by examining and evaluating current structures for alumni engagement. The committee will recommend opportunities to improve and expand upon currently existing engagement opportunities to ensure alumni participation is meaningful and enduring.

    Dean's Circle Committee: This committee seeks to strengthen the culture of philanthropy at MIT Sloan by identifying ways to encourage philanthropic support and by serving as peer-to-peer solicitors for gifts to the MIT Sloan Annual Fund Dean’s Circle, the School’s leadership giving society.

    Through the combined work of the leadership group and the two 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 often to learn more about the activities of the MIT Sloan Alumni Board.
