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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veterans Visit Day – Spring 2020 TBA
For those of you able to join us on campus for the Fall 2019 event, we would like to thank you for taking the time to come to campus and experience Veterans Visit Day. We hope you enjoyed the event and are inspired to join our community of cutting-edge thinkers and principled leaders.
Each semester, the admissions office and the MIT Sloan Veterans Association host prospective military veteran students on campus. The day offers attendees an opportunity to get a feel for the MIT Sloan culture through activities including a class visit, lunch with students, and networking with current veteran students.
Watch a virtual panel of students and alumni of the MIT Sloan Veterans Club discuss opportunities available to former and current members of the armed services here at MIT Sloan.
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 last year.
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.
