The LGBTQ+ Community

Respect for Every Student

Our students come to MIT Sloan with unique backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs. These collective differences create a rich educational environment and a diverse campus community filled with opportunity. We look forward to knowing and celebrating the person you are, and we are excited to see what you will bring to the MIT Sloan community.

Lesbians, gays, bisexual, and transgender individuals are welcome here at MIT Sloan. The Sloan Pride Club organizes events open to the entire MIT Sloan community and fosters inclusion and support. Please feel free to reach out to the club officers at lgbtofficer@sloan.mit.edu.
