Community Catalyst Leadership Program is back y’allllllll!

Hey, you… yeah, you.  No, not you… well, actually, you too.

Have you been thinking to yourself lately, “Shoot, I wish I had the opportunity to have a MIT alumni mentor to help me craft my leadership vision, coach me through my collegiate experience to better prepare me to engage as a student, professional, and citizen at MIT and beyond?”

See, even Benedict was thinking it.

Well, even if you haven’t been thinking that exact thing, if you are a member of the Class of 2017, then the Community Catalyst Leadership Program, or CCLP, is a great leadership and mentorship opportunity you have the opportunity to apply for!

Established in 2007, the Community Catalyst Leadership Program (CCLP) asks participants to engage in a journey of personal leadership development and reflection. Each participant is paired with an MIT alumnus/a in a coaching relationship designed to meet each student’s personal development goals. This program is open to students regardless of prior participation in leadership opportunities at MIT. There are four components of the program: one-on-one coaching, educational sessions, leadership planning, and personal reflection.

Not exactly what we mean by “personal reflection”…

There are a couple opportunities to learn more about the program, including info sessions on November 3rd at 7pm in 3-422 and on November 18th, from 12-1pm in 3-442.

Then, the application deadline is November 21st, 2014 – and remember, you can apply here: https://alum.mit.edu/students/NetworkwithAlumni/cclp 

For those accepted, there is a mandatory Kick-Off Conference on February 8th, 2015… but that’s in a whole other year… so, like, just make sure you apply first!

Springtime = Awards Time!

As we quickly come up on the end of another academic year, it is time to take a moment and reflect on all that we have done: the programming, the work on developing our membership, and the relationships built with members of the MIT community.

The Student Activities Office and the Office of Multicultural Programs is happy to help recognize those students, staff, faculty, and organizations who have contributed to the MIT experience this year.  There are two upcoming opportunities to recognize those people you feel are deserving of campus-wide and community recognition for their hard and dedicated work.


The Office of Multicultural Programs is very excited to announce it’s Inaugural Multicultural Programs Banquet! This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the great work members of our campus community/student organizations are doing to foster a campus that celebrates and affirms individuals from all backgrounds. 

Make sure you learn more about what awards exist and then nominate someone for these awards by April 22nd at 5pm at this link!


The Student Activities Office and Division of Student Life are currently taking nominations for the Student Leader Awards!  There are awards for both individuals and groups, and you can find out more information here.  Make sure you get your nominations in for SLA by April 26th!


We look forward to seeing your nominations, and we look forward to recognizing the awesome work that MIT community members have been doing this year!

We’ll try and keep our award presenters on top of things… we promise.
