Modeled after a successful program at Harvard, the MIT Graduate School Leadership Institute aspires to be a first-of-its-kind, peer-led collaboration across all MIT graduate schools to further develop the leadership skills, experience, and network of outstanding MIT graduate students who have already exhibited strong leadership capacity. Out of the hectic pace of studying at MIT, the program carves out dedicated time and space for purposeful, authentic reflection and connection. Given the universal need for leadership across disciplines, this cross-MIT program aims to establish long-term bonds and a leadership tool kit amongst a diverse set of graduate students with the goal of building robust leadership development and positive impact in the world.
After an initial pilot program in the spring of 2016, we hope to continue to expand this to as many students as possible! This spring pilot anticipates consisting of six Tuesday evening sessions at MIT on March 1, 8, 29, and April 5, 12, 26. Sessions will begin with a soft start over dinner provided to participants from 7:30-8:00pm, with then focused programming 8:00-10:00pm. For more information/application please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that limited space is available for the pilot and the group will be finalized by February 29. Special thanks to the MIT Leadership Center, ODGE, SAO, GSC, and other agencies which have help inform and support this pilot launch.
