Alumni Initiative Launches
MEET is very excited to roll out several new Alumni Network initiatives this year.
- Online Alumni Portal: The Alumni Portal will be an online information sharing resource for that will include job boards, information on applying to university, announcements of MEET alumni events and volunteer opportunities and will facilitate connections between MEET alumni, MIT instructors, staff and mentors.
- MEET Accelerator Lab: The MEET Accelerator Lab will provide a supportive environment for MEET alumni to lead their own technology projects. The Lab will provide professional workspace, focused trainings and mentorship to bi-national teams as they turn their technology project ideas into reality.
- Alumni Mentorship Program: Over the next year, MEET will develop a formalized structure to facilitate mentorship between MEET alumni and past instructors, and local leaders in the technology, business, and social sectors. We would also like to facilitate mentorship and networking between older and newer MEET alumni.
In addition to the initiatives above, MEET will be holding several Alumni Events throughout the year. These will include trainings, lectures, networking events and social gatherings. Moran Chen, MEET’s Alumni Relations Coordinator, is establishing an Alumni Network Steering Committee that will help identify Alumni Network priorities and plan activities. Please contact Moran at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the committee.
