Nominations Now Open for 2023 MIT Change-Maker Awards

MIT recognizes outstanding students, faculty, and staff for their work to combat sexual misconduct at the annual Change-Maker Awards. The first honorees were recognized in 2017, and nominations for the 2023 awards are now open--submit a nomination by March 21! 

MIT Change-Makers actively and intentionally work to combat harassment and sexual violence by challenging harmful attitudes, language, or behaviors. 

Violence Prevention & Response (VPR) and the Institute Discrimination & Harassment Response Office (IDHR) invite you to nominate an extraordinary individual or student group for the MIT Change-Maker Awards! By making a nomination, you are showing your appreciation for a person or group who ultimately creates a safer, healthier, and more inclusive MIT community.  

Nominations are open until March 21, 2023. 

Please take a moment to nominate an individual or club/group who exemplifies the qualities of a Change-Maker (please note staff from VPR and IDHR are ineligible for this award). The nomination categories are: 

  • Undergraduate student 
  • Graduate student 
  • Employee (Faculty, Staff, and Postdocs) 
  • Student Club or Group 

Submit a Nomination!

Award recipients will be notified via email. We will celebrate honorees among invited guests at the Change-Makers banquet, taking place April 24, 2023. If you have questions about the awards or nominations, email
