Glen Shor oversees the Office of the Vice President for Finance (VPF), which advances MIT’s mission by supporting thoughtful stewardship and effective deployment of the Institute’s financial resources.
Under Shor’s leadership, VPF is creating a more seamless administrative experience and enhancing access to financial data for the MIT community, while adapting its services to the evolving demands of an increasingly global Institute.
Prior to his work at MIT, Shor served as Secretary of Administration and Finance for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts under Governor Deval Patrick. Shor was also profiled in the Boston Globe Magazine in 2012 as one of “12 Bostonians Changing the World” for his contributions to health reform in Massachusetts while serving in the Patrick Administration. He played a leading role in implementing programs and policies that have expanded coverage to hundreds of thousands of the Commonwealth’s residents.
Before his service in the Patrick Administration, Shor was senior policy counsel and assistant attorney general in the Office of the Attorney General of Massachusetts, a senior policy aide to U.S. Rep. Martin T. Meehan, chief counsel to U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, and a public interest attorney who participated in the McConnell v. FEC campaign finance case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Shor holds a BA in history from Yale University and a JD from Harvard University.
