My Sister's Keeper

My Sister’s Keeper (MSK) is a collaborative initiative that is designed to help support the continued success of MIT's black women students. MSK engages MIT black women undergraduate and graduate students in social, professional, and mentoring relationships with faculty and staff that will positively shape their MIT experience and inspire them along the way.

We wanted something unique.We hope to provide emotional and psychological support, foster kinship and community, strengthen academic performance, and cultivate engagement in social, political, and cultural matters beyond the classroom.
