Leadeship at MIT
As President Hockfield stated in her inaugural address, "MIT is uniquely equipped, and obliged, to make a critical difference... to educate the leaders the world needs now."

Rather than classifying people as "leaders" or "nonleaders" and trying to develop individuals into leaders, MIT assumes that everyone can learn and grow in ways that make them more effective in the various contexts, roles within a group, and processes they take on in their lives. Each experience you engage in during your time at MIT is an opportunity to test skills, shape effectiveness, and enhance awareness about how you want to impact the world.

We have developed this website as the foundation for a Virtual Leadership Center, a one-stop-shop for dissemination of information about the wide inventory of offerings across MIT that provide leadership development opportunities for students.
