Student Advisory Committee

IDHR's Student Advisory Committee (formerly known as the Title IX Student Advisory Committee and the Student Title IX Working Group) was formed in 2013 to help guide MIT’s education and outreach efforts.

Program Purpose:

MIT’s Institute Discrimination & Harassment Response Office (IDHR) is dedicated to preventing and addressing discrimination and discriminatory harassment across the Institute. The Student Advisory Committee is made up of undergraduate and graduate students from across the Institute who provide feedback and input to IDHR office regarding our messaging and outreach campaigns and help us most effectively engage with the student body around issues of gender equity and discrimination.

Committee Mission:

The Student Advisory Committee strives to create an inclusive culture that is safer, active, and more empowering. The Committee believes that all students should feel safe on campus and should not be treated differently based on their identities. The Student Advisory Committee hopes to be a place where students across the Institute can be involved in inclusive and engaging discussions regarding how to better our school community and social spaces.

The Details

The Committee of graduate and undergraduate students meets monthly with a minimum expectation of 10-15 hours of commitment across the school year. Subcommittees meet as needed. Please e-mail for more information or to join the Committee for the 2020-2021 Academic Year.

In addition to the full committee, there are two subcommittees:
