An important message from MIT Alumni Association:

Each week, we will be writing to highlight activities that might be of interest and where you might be able to lend your unique talents and perspectives. These will be added to an MITAA web page of relevant virtual events, volunteer opportunities, ways to give, and more. At the end of this note are three initiatives that would benefit from alumni/ae involvement.

If you’re interested, below are some additional areas where you can offer support:

Participate in an active MIT community response effort
Managed by the MIT Innovation Initiative, the Covid-19 Rapid Innovation Dashboard is an online platform that curates the many efforts underway to activate and engage the MIT community in urgent problem solving regarding the pandemic.

Help find solutions toward ensuring health and safety
MIT Solve has launched a Health Security & Pandemics Challenge seeking tech innovations that can slow and track the spread of an emerging outbreak like Covid-19, and prevent or mitigate future outbreaks by strengthening health systems. Alumni/ae can join the movement by offering ideas, reviewing solutions, supporting Solver teams, giving, and helping to share the word.

Please continue to visit MIT’s Covid-19 Info Center for key Institute updates and subscribe to the MIT Daily email newsletter for an overview of MIT’s response and research during this unprecedented time.
