Middlebury College has begun the search for its 17th president.
On December 12, 2013, President Ronald D. Liebowitz announced that he will step down as Middlebury’s 16th president on June 30, 2015, after 11 years in office. By every measure, these years have been a time of tremendous innovation and achievement.
Now, the Middlebury Board of Trustees seeks to identify an exceptional individual to become the next president. The board has named a search committee and selected a partner, Spencer Stuart, to assist in the search.
Middlebury College is universally recognized as one of the leading liberal arts colleges in the United States. It provides students with a rigorous education and a wide range of opportunities to pursue interests and experiences outside the classroom. From the sciences to the humanities, from the social sciences to the arts, Middlebury encourages students to seek out ways to make a meaningful contribution in a world that is increasingly global and complex.
Middlebury’s reach extends well beyond the undergraduate experience. The Middlebury Language Schools are known around the world for the excellence of their immersive approach to language learning. The Bread Loaf School of English has granted more master’s degrees in English than any institution over the last 80 years. The annual Bread Loaf Writers Conference is the nation’s oldest gathering of its kind. Our Schools Abroad programs operate in 36 locations in 16 countries around the world. And the Monterey Institute of International Studies, which Middlebury acquired in 2010, is a leader in graduate education in translation and interpretation and a range of programs in international policy, development, education, and security.
The campus of Middlebury College, located in Middlebury, Vermont, is considered one of the most beautiful in New England, and fosters a spirit of intense, personal education.
