Our Mission

The purpose of this committee is to encourage undergraduate involvement in the global, national, and local community through service projects, to foster a better relationship between MIT’s undergraduate community and the Cambridge community, and to build a greater sense of community among undergraduates through service-related bonding.

Current Projects

  • Building our network! The UA Community Service committee is in it's first official semester and currently we are building a database of connections both within and MIT and outside. By the end of the semester, our goal is to have a contact in every dorm/living group/FSILG and service organization on campus as well as three strong community partners in the Cambridge/Boston area.
  • The second current project is creating a easy-to-use calendar of community service opportunities for students on campus that all students can go to when they have free time and want to get involved.
