Meet the New Alum.mit.edu

How to explore the Alumni Association’s resources online.
February 21, 2018

The MIT Alumni Association has revamped its website to make it easier than ever for alumni to access benefits and resources and stay connected to the Institute and one another. Here’s a quick primer on the new site, found at alum.mit.edu.

1. Find your community

Visit the Communities pages to connect with MIT’s global network of regional alumni clubs, or to join an interest-based alumni group. Read up on peers in Class Notes and learn how to get involved with your class.

2. Locate events and programs in your area—and beyond

The Events section hosts the Association’s full listing of in-person and online events. Visit these pages to view upcoming events, stay up-to-date on Tech Reunions, and learn about the 30-plus annual trips offered by MIT Alumni Travel.

3. Access resources to help your career

The Careers section offers details on virtual career fairs, recruiting events, career services, and topical webinars aimed at helping you navigate your professional life. Search and post job opportunities on the MIT Alumni Job Board, and register for the MIT Alumni Advisors Hub to give or receive career advice.

4. Never stop learning

Visit the Learn area to engage in virtual events and lectures featuring MIT faculty and alumni speakers, travel on faculty-led trips with MIT Alumni Travel, and access online educational platforms like MITx and OpenCourseWare.

5. Find out about benefits for MIT alumni

The About section offers resources exclusive to alumni, including financial services and online journal access. Learn how to access your free subscription to MIT Technology Review and follow the Alumni Association on social media.

6. Explore the Volunteer Knowledge Base

Current volunteers can find resources personalized to their roles on the new KnowledgeBase. Log in with your Infinite Connection credentials and get immediate access to the applicable volunteer tools, timely messages about deadlines, and training dates.

7. Volunteer for MIT

More than 14,000 engaged volunteers support MIT each year. The Volunteer section features details on how you can serve on boards and committees, become a class officer, organize reunion events, and lead a club or group.

The website is also the new home for Slice of MIT, the Alumni Association’s award-winning daily blog. Slice will continue to feature compelling and insightful stories about MIT alumni and campus life, along with more ways to stay connected with the Association’s offerings and programming.

As you browse the site, don’t forget to log in to the Infinite Connection, which allows you to access the newly enhanced alumni directory of more than 136,000 MIT grads and comment on Slice of MIT stories.
