Celebrating MIT Sloan together

Tom WitkowskiTom Witkowski, Director, Creative Strategy; Kristina Gulick Schaefer, Associate Dean, External Relations

Dear Alumni,

We very much enjoyed seeing so many of you return to campus last May for Alumni Weekend and Building the Future, the celebration of MIT Sloan. A record number of alumni from every MIT Sloan academic program journeyed to Cambridge from across the globe.

Alumni Weekend affirmed much of what we learned from the Alumni Engagement Study completed in 2009: You strongly desire continuous learning opportunities, prefer to learn with one another, and want more direct interaction with the School’s faculty. The packed Back to the Classroom sessions made that clear.

Many of you also returned early to participate in the dedication of our new building and the faculty-driven colloquium, Exchange 62: Now and Next, which marked the occasion. It was gratifying to see the School’s alumni, many of whom made generous gifts in support of the building, walking the halls of E62 and the Joan and William A. Porter 1967 Center for Management Education.

For those of you who were unable to attend Building the Future, we have posted videos of the dedication, the colloquium sessions, and the Alumni Weekend academic sessions online in their entirety, and edited excerpts will soon be available as well. Please visit Building the Future for coverage of all the events and Alumni Weekend for specific coverage of Alumni Weekend. On the Building the Future website, you also will find photo galleries of the events, more information about our new building, and even a self-guided tour of the building that you can download.
