MIT’s Division of Student Life (DSL) held their first Student Organization Leadership Summit, where more than 300 representatives from student clubs and activities gathered in the La Sala de Puerto Rico (W20-202) on Saturday, Sept. 21.

Throughout the day, student leaders participated in workshops and important dialogues to improve the management of their organizations. Points of focus within the sessions were organizational process, interpersonal engagement, and diversity and inclusion.

The summit was a product of collaboration between the Student Organization Leadership Committee, composed of DSL staff and student leaders. The goal of the summit was to implement training programs for campus organizations so that students in leadership roles can retain members by building their group’s identity and community. The first Student Organization Leadership Summit gave students the opportunity to participate in an impactful discourse about the clubs that these leaders dedicate so much of their time to.
