Student Voice

MIT values the student voice. Whether it is in the classroom, your faculty, campus or across the Institute, we value what you have to say and there are lots of ways to get involved.

Class Representatives

Class reps are the student voice of the classroom by passing on feedback that enhances student learning at MIT. Class reps fill out the digital diary weekly. Everyone should have a class rep and we want to know what’s going good and what might need improvement. Whether it’s big or small we want to hear. This is a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills. Class reps are elected in the first week of your course.


The student voice digital diary can be found here.
