Institute Committee Representatives

Serving on an Institute Committee as a graduate student enables you to significantly impact important decisions made by the Institute. You will serve as a voting member of a committee which advises faculty and administration, and ultimately reports to the MIT President. During the Spring/Summer, these positions are relatively open, which makes this the best time to apply for the committee of your choice.

Representative Responsibilities

Presidential/Faculty Committee Representatives should attend the General Council Meetings (first Wednesday of every month, 5:30pm) both to learn about issues the graduate student body faces and to disseminate information. More formal reporting should be done to the GSC Standing Committee to which the Presidential/Faculty Committee pertains – this reporting information is available on the Nominations Board page. Lastly, all Presidential/Faculty Committee Representatives will be expected to submit an end-of-year report summarizing the actions and issues of their committee during their tenure.
