MIT has a unique commitment to its host community, recognizing that the long-range welfare of the community and the Institute are often inseparable. In its role of coordinating the Institute's community relations efforts, the Office of Government and Community Relations provides information and support to community-based organizations and individuals wishing to connect with MIT.

MIT endeavors to be responsive to community needs and concerns and shares its resources in a variety of ways that include supporting nonprofits through facility use, volunteerism and financial contributions; sharing of expertise; dissemenating promotional materials; and engaging in educational initatives. Please see the links on the right side of this page for additional information on accessing MIT's resources.
The Office welcomes inquiries, as well as suggestions for ways the Institute can help promote a more vital community-at-large.
