A commemorative video about the Arts at MIT from 1972-2012 created on the 40th Anniversary of CAMIT’s founding.
Thank you for your interest in joining the Council for the Arts at MIT (CAMIT).
The Council was founded in 1972 by president Jerome B. Wiesner, and is an international volunteer group of alumni and friends established to support the arts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. With its enthusiastic advocacy for all the arts at MIT, the Council’s mission is to act as a catalyst for the development of a broadly based, highly participatory program in the arts, firmly founded on teaching, practice, and research at the Institute, and to conduct arts-related fundraising activities on behalf of MIT.
The Council’s programs are funded entirely by the annual contributions of its members.
To find out more about CAMIT Membership, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership dues to the Council are used to fund a variety of programs intended to promote the arts at MIT.
Members of the Council range in interests from art history to interactive digital media and come from a variety of backgrounds.
Starting in 1994, CAMIT has designed excursions for its members to cities both foreign and domestic, during which the travelers see the best aspects of the arts in each place. Private collections, backstage visits, “hardhat” tours and convivial meals are the highlights, but perhaps the most treasured aspects of the trips are the friendships made and sustained between our members.
Connect with other Council members and track with news about MIT alumni, faculty and students in the arts.
The members of the Council for the Arts at MIT serve at the pleasure of the President of MIT. Members serve three-year terms; at the end of each term, the membership is reviewed for renewal.
Each year every MIT department, lab or center submits a Report to the President outlining the accomplishments and activities of the year just passed.
