The parents of MIT students are an integral and valued part of the MIT family.
Here in Cambridge and across the nation and the world, MIT is engaging humanity’s greatest challenges while making a difference through education, research, and innovation. The Institute could not be more pleased to welcome parents, both those who are new and those who already have been with us, to the shared endeavors of our MIT community.
MIT parents have many opportunities to connect with and actively participate in the life of the Institute. From Campus Preview Weekend to Family Weekend to Commencement, through lectures, athletic events, volunteering, giving opportunities, and so much more, parents can share with their students the richness of the MIT experience.
