Veterans at MIT Sloan The history of MIT has been intertwined with the military for decades. MIT students and professors have been at the forefront of new technology, from the development of computers, radar, and inertial guidance systems during World War II to the creation of air defense systems and the Internet. The MIT Sloan Veterans Association welcomes military veterans from all services and from many different countries. Building on the strong foundation of leadership that veterans develop in the military, the MIT Sloan VA strives to help veterans reach new heights in their careers. Please feel free to reach out to the club officers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Events VETERAN'S AMBASSADOR PROGRAM This fall, on November 7, the Admissions office and MIT Sloan Veterans Association enjoyed hosting prospective military Veteran students on-campus. The day offered attendees an opportunity to get a feel for the MIT Sloan culture through activities including a class visit, career development session, action learning session, and happy hour to connect with current Veteran students. ASK ME ANYTHING SERIES This event celebrates the diversity of the MIT Sloan community and fosters a culture of inclusiveness. The Ask Me Anything series, supported by the Student Life Office, allows students to openly ask a panel of students any questions they have. The MIT Sloan Veterans Association hosted a panel about the U.S. military last year. IAP COURSE Students in The MIT Sloan Veterans Association created a three-day course about the U.S. military and leadership. This course is taught in January during MIT's Independent Activities Period (IAP).
