Student Life

We are the Wayfinders!

We are the wayfinders! We help students to navigate their Sloan experience outside the classroom. We help them find and build community, get involved and contribute their talents to Sloan, and we provide and nurture a caring and welcoming environment by partnering with students to meet their expressed needs.

Caring, Contribution, and Community

The Student Life Office at MIT Sloan promotes caring, contribution, and community across all of MIT Sloan's degree programs. We work in close partnership with the many student service teams at Sloan and across MIT. We are here to help students navigate their MIT Sloan experience and the many resources at their disposal while supporting a diverse and caring student culture.

Caring—We provide advising and coaching to advance student success, and we support initiatives to promote individual well-being and a respectful and caring community.

Contribution—We support student initiatives for learning, leadership, and impact outside the classroom by providing students with opportunities to organize and run clubs and events; participate in student government; and plan conferences, study tours, and treks.

Community—We produce School-wide events and programs that build community, promote diversity and inclusion, and enhance the principled and values-centered culture that defines MIT Sloan. We also partner with students to support their events and initiatives.
