Our Program Policies

Our Program Policies

Center events are free and open to all members of the MIT community, including faculty, staff, postdoctoral associates, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and their families.

Registration is required so that we can plan appropriate seating and notify you in the event of a room change or last-minute cancellation.

Although many events are scheduled to run from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm, those participants with restricted lunch hours or other commitments are welcome to leave early.

Child care: We can generally accommodate children at child care briefings, provided attendees take responsibility for their care. However, we regret that we cannot accommodate children or provide child care at other Work-Life Center Programs. If you need help finding someone to care for your child while you attend one of our programs, contact Care.com at 1-855-781-1303.

Bringing lunch: For Work-Life Center Programs, participants are welcome to bring their lunch. 

Cancelations: Please be sure to inform Lauren Cotlar, Work-Life Representative, at 617-253-1592 or worklife-seminars@mit.edu, if you are not able to attend.
