Programs for current students

As you develop yourself and build community on campus, MIT offers several key programs to support you. 

The Ignite community series provides seminars specifically designed for graduate students who self-identify as underrepresented minorities or underserved groups.

The Office of Graduate Education’s annual Graduate Student Appreciation Week celebrates MIT’s graduate students through community-building, fulfilling events, and opportunities to take a break and take care of yourself.

The University Center of Exemplary Mentoring (UCEM) focuses on the recruitment, retention, and academic success of underrepresented minority doctoral students in four departments in the School of Engineering.
