What makes the difference between surviving and thriving at MIT? Often it’s a combination of rich and supportive relationships, a sense of meaning and purpose, and proactive self-care. These are all specialties of MIT’s Office of Religious, Spiritual and Ethical Life (ORSEL). Our mission is to care for and empower students holistically as they seek to find integration and balance in their academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. With over two dozen chaplains representing many of the world’s religious, spiritual and ethical traditions, and more than 25 different student communities, we are here for ALL students—religious, secular or anywhere in between. For new students joining MIT virtually this Fall, our office offers individual counseling, workshops, and gatherings to support their growth and help build a sense of community. Drop by our virtual open house to meet some of the MIT chaplains and learn more about how ORSEL can support your child in thriving at MIT.
