Veterans at MIT Sloan

 

The MIT Sloan Veterans Association

MIT and the military have been intertwined 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 veterans of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces as well as veterans of foreign militaries. Building on the strong foundation of leadership that veterans develop in the military, the MIT Sloan VA helps veterans reach new heights in their careers. Please feel free to reach out to the club officers at vets.officers@sloangroups.mit.edu.

Student-led Events
 

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 regularly hosts a panel about the U.S. military.

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.
