The MIT Women’s League is one of several organizations on campus that share a commitment to serving and supporting women in the community.
The MIT Work-Life Center is committed to meeting the personal and professional needs of faculty, staff, postdocs, graduate students, and their families. The Work-Life Center offers services and guidance in the areas of childcare and schools, parenting, aging and elder care, and support for young professionals.
The Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center, known as the PKG Center, is part of the Division of Student Life. Here you’ll find information about public service and volunteer opportunities locally, nationally, and globally.
MIT Spouses & Partners Connect is a dedicated network for the significant others of MIT students, postdocs, staff, and faculty who have relocated to the Boston area. They help new arrivals meet people, discover work and career opportunities, improve their English, and get information about living and parenting in Boston.
Hosts to International Students Program (HISP) matches incoming international students with MIT faculty, staff, alumni, and friends to help students make the transition to life in the US. HISP is facilitated by the International Students Office.
Institute Community and Equity Office (ICEO) advances a respectful and caring community that embraces diversity and empowers everyone to learn and do their best at MIT. The League collaborates with ICEO to present Storytelling Lunches throughout the year where anyone from the MIT community is invited to share stories on a theme.
Graduate Women at MIT (GWAMIT) is a student-led organization dedicated to the personal and professional development of women graduate students at MIT. As a subcommittee of the Graduate Student Council, they provide a unified voice for MIT’s graduate women. All members of MIT are welcome to become GWAMIT members and attend their events.
Class Awareness Support and Equity (CASE) works to improve the MIT community’s awareness of class disparities and knowledge of the socioeconomic status system. They help students who are facing financial challenges connect with resources both on and off campus and provide a supportive atmosphere for engaging in dialogue about class-based issues. CASE works with MIT administrators to create and implement effective solutions to ease financial strains that incoming and current students face on campus.
The group now known as the Honorary League was established in 1965 as a way for Women’s League members whose husbands had retired or passed away to stay connected to MIT and to each other. We’re proud that today the Honorary League also welcomes the many women who have themselves retired from a career in service of the Institute. Members of the Honorary League are invited to two annual luncheons as guests of the MIT President. For more information, please email Kirsty Bennett or call the MIT Women’s League office at 617-253-3656.
