WXGS Events & Programs

WXGS' mission is to build community and a sense of belonging at MIT. We do this through monthly and recurring programs and events centered on wellness, education, discussion, intersectional identity, support, creativity, leadership, and fun. Students can engage with each other and connect with the larger faculty and staff community. These opportunities come from all areas of campus—student groups, administrative offices, academic departments, dorms, and lab groups.
