As a first point of contact to discuss or plan an international engagement, please reach out to the International Coordinating Committee (ICC). The ICC guides MIT faculty, researchers, students, and staff in planning, negotiating, and implementing international projects.

You may submit an international program or project to be considered for inclusion on the Global MIT website by sending a message outlining your request to Mihaela Papa.

In an emergency

International SOS (ISOS)
Phone: (US intl. code) 215-942-8478 MIT ID#: 11BSGC000066

*Call collect any time. International calling codes for the United States vary; please check this website for the correct code.

While abroad, ISOS is MIT’s key point of contact in the event of an emergency.

  • In case of medical emergency, seek care at the nearest medical facility. If you do not know where this is, or if follow-up and support services are needed, contact ISOS.
  • In a natural disaster (both pre/post event) or a political type event such as civil unrest or a terrorist attack, contact ISOS immediately.
  • In a criminal event, such as assault or robbery, contact ISOS. They will assist in providing further direction on contacting local resources.
