MIT Women's League

Up and Doing for 100 Years!

Throughout the academic year, the League is hosting events to celebrate its history of women who have served and continue to serve the MIT community.

During WWI, volunteers assembled "comfort bags" for MIT servicemen overseas. In the 60s, League members drove new foreign students around the local area to help them find apartments. Today, League volunteers teach English as a second language to service workers at the Institute.

These are just a few examples that reflect the willingness of members to re-evaluate and reinvent — keeping the organization vibrant and in-step with the times.

Please join us as we celebrate our centennial and honor those who have fostered and continue to develop this organization.
