Welcome to MIT Institute Events

Our department is part of the Office of the Vice President and Secretary of the Corporation and comprises visitor information, Conference Services, Community Services, Commencement, and several lecture series.

The mission of Institute Events is to meet the information needs of the MIT community, campus visitors, and the public; to orchestrate and advise on issues of protocol; to distribute knowledge and best practices in event planning and coordination; to promote community within MIT and hospitality to campus guests; and to support conferences and direct events that sustain MIT’s global leadership in education, research, and innovation.
