Glen Shor was appointed executive vice president and treasurer in October 2020. In this role, he is the chief steward of MIT’s $36 billion in financial assets and $4 billion operating budget, responsible for financial strategy development, operations and capital budget planning, debt issuance, and maintenance of the integrity of financial information for the Institute. He also leads the administrative functions at MIT including operating units focused on finance, human resources, information systems and technology, campus services and stewardship, security and safety, and campus medical care.

Shor joined MIT in January 2015 as vice president for finance. In that role, he was a lead member of a team that bolstered MIT’s financial resilience in the ensuing years, advancing strategic initiatives while still conserving endowment, building central reserves, and proactively planning for budget stresses. In 2020, he collaborated with Institute leadership in developing a financial framework to respond to the impacts of COVID-19, leveraging these strong fiscal foundations. He also led several key initiatives to improve administrative operations for the MIT community and strengthen compliance, including implementing the Buy-to-Pay procurement system; changing the payroll cadence for faculty, salaried staff, and graduate students from monthly to semimonthly; enhancing MIT credit card controls; and leveraging artificial intelligence tools to improve transaction processing. Shor elevated the central strategic sourcing function at MIT, positioning it to play a more impactful role in assisting the Institute with purchasing mission-critical supplies and services and fostering deeper engagement with diverse and sustainable suppliers.

Prior to his work at MIT, Shor served for two years as secretary of administration and finance for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts under former Governor Deval Patrick, overseeing the state's operating and capital budgets and its agencies charged with tax collection, information technology services, facilities management, procurement, and human resources. Prior to that he was the executive director of the Massachusetts Health Connector, overseeing the programs, operations, and staff of the commonwealth’s public health insurance exchange. He also held roles as senior policy counsel and assistant attorney general in the Office of the Attorney General of Massachusetts, a senior policy aide to former U.S. Representative Martin T. Meehan, chief counsel to U.S. Senator 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, awarded in 1993, and a JD from Harvard Law School, awarded in 1996.
