Who we are

"The only way to achieve the impossible is to believe it is possible". —Charles Kingsleigh. This statement reflects the mindset of MIT’s faculty, students, administrative staff and support staff, and the work they do every day.  

With over 1,500 support staff at MIT’s main campus and the 400 or so at Lincoln Laboratory and other facilities, support staffers want to help their Departments, Labs and Centers be successful – and achieve the impossible. Whether we are working with faculty, students, or the administrative side of the house, we are working hard behind the scenes to help meet goals!

It is not surprising that some support staff hold a variety of degrees, and with this talent and working together we can realize many accomplishments. This diverse group of individuals comes from all socioeconomic backgrounds and ethnicities.  It is our aim to continue to be dedicated, grow and be committed to MIT’s mission and overarching global goals.  The Working Group for Support Staff provides the perfect platform to achieve and support MIT’s mission now and into the future.
