Upcoming Events


MIT Club of Chicago is the official group supporting connectivity, professional development, and community among MIT alumni in the Chicagoland area.  We host events for our members throughout the year that: connect our alumni to each other and MIT, develop them as leaders, and bring the spirit of MIT to our local community.  

We serve as a resource to prospective, newly admitted, and current MIT students and their families, and work to engage alumni in MIT's major initiatives to advance K12 STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) and Energy and
Legislative Advocacy.
