Alumni & Parents

Alumni and parents play a crucial role in shaping students' experiences at MIT. Alumni can serve as career advisors and educational counselors, and they can host students for externships. Parents can get involved by volunteering with the Parent Connectors or the Parents Fund Committee and visiting during Family Weekend.

Impact students' lives by serving as career advisors, educational counselors, and liaisons between MIT and your home community.
