In the ALC opening keynote, Sheila Xu '14 challenged MIT to better embrace deaf students: “If you take advantage of the skills and knowledge of the deaf community, it will enrich all of MIT.”
The Association's alumni engagement diagram displays how alumni volunteers support programs that engage alumni face-to-face, philanthropically through Annual Fund giving, and virtually through the Infinite Connection and social media. Alumni from more than 40 different graduating class years—ranging from '44 to '13— returned to familiar sites on campus, including Bldg. 7 and the Infinite Corridor. Attendees view a t-shirt from MIT's Glass Lab, which showcased its annual Great Glass Pumpkin Patch during ALC. Volunteers heard MIT President L. Rafael Reif discuss his vision for MIT's road ahead, its opportunities for change and improvement, and share what he learned during the first year of his presidency. MIT Alumni Association Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Judith M. Cole, MIT President L. Rafael Reif, Bronze Beaver Award winner G. Mead Wyman ’62, Bronze Beaver Award winner Cordelia M. Price ’78, SM ’82, and Alumni Association President John W. Jarve ’78, SM ’79.

ALC is open to first-time volunteers and experienced supporters of MIT.
