An ISA Hub is a group of MIT affiliates (initially undergraduates, with potential expansion to include graduate students and alumni depending on the projects success) that are geographically close and therefore share a similar time zone. The purpose of the Hubs is to have a centralized place to do regional work, projects, networking, and maintain a tangible connection to MIT. In essence, the Hubs will be virtual bubbles across the globe for MIT students to utilize when physically located in a certain region. Hence, we see a purpose for them beyond just this semester with the MIT community scattered by the pandemic. Moreover, this structure aims to provide mentoring to first-year students and to keep students on leaves of absence or studying abroad connected to the Institute. Each Hub will have a representative who will be responsible for organizing the Hubs events and will serve as a link to the ISA and MIT. One of the principal driving factors for creating the Hubs is that they will always be student led and managed, unlike similar existing projects. By global students; for global students.
