Planning a trek gives you the opportunity to test your leadership skills, get an in-depth look at a particular industry or geography, and build contacts/community to help you in the future. Check out our detailed page for Planning a Trek.
What you need to know:
- The "Student Organized Travel" template on SloanGroups MUST be used to manage the trek. This template includes a mandatory waiver and asks for emergency contact information for attendees – required by MIT. A detailed itinerary must be listed in the event description.
- MIT also requires all MIT-related domestic (more than 100 miles from MIT's Cambridge campus) and international travel be registered via the MIT Travel Registry per the current MIT travel policy. Please instruct your attendees accordingly.
- To use the MIT Sloan name, treks must obtain Branding Rights through the Trek Branding Rights Application.
- Participants may NOT travel when classes are scheduled.
- Treks MAY be scheduled during SIP week. However, please note that planning a trek during SIP would exclude the following groups due to required programming: MBAn students, Executive degree students, 1st year MBA students, and students participating in Action Learning
- Treks may not take place during orientation week(s).
- ALL activities that take place during a trek MUST be open to and accessible to all attendees.
- Treks cannot take place in a country listed under a travel warning by MIT or the U.S. State Department.
