About Us

Over the course of the fall of 2015 and winter of 2016, a few hundred students and LBGTQ+ community members have been working to compile recommendations to the Institute that support an improved experience for LBGTQ+ students at MIT.

Keeping in mind the full breadth and intersections of identities found within all MIT communities and MIT community members, these recommendations are made in full support of and in collaboration/connection with the recent Black Students' Union (BSU), Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA), Black Alumni/ae of MIT (BAMIT), Institute Community and Equity Officer (ICEO), women students, and Division of Student Life (DSL)/Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education (DUE)/Office of the Dean for Graduate Education (ODGE) staff recommendations.
