Get Involved & Student Organizations


Women have been an important part of the Institution since Ellen Swallow Richards, the first MIT woman student, graduated in 1873. Women-identified students now make up over 45 percent of the student body, and there are a number of student organizations led by and dedicated to women-identified students.

Check out the right menu to find out more about those student organizations. For a full list of ways to get involved on campus, check out the ASA database. If you're interested in developing your leadership skills, the Division of Student Life and MIT offer a number of opportunities. You can also talk to someone in the Student Activities Office in W20-549 to find out more.
