The Corporation Joint Advisory Committee on Institute-Wide Affairs (CJAC), established in 1969, is the only Corporation committee on which current faculty and students serve.

CJAC consists of up to 20 voting members, including:

  • Four ex officio members: the MIT Alumni Association President; Chair of the Faculty; Undergraduate Association President; and Graduate Student Council President;
  • Up to seven additional members of the Corporation, one of whom may be a non-voting emeritus member;
  • Five additional members of the faculty; and
  • Two undergraduate students selected by the Undergraduate Association and two graduate students selected by the Graduate Student Council.
