We made it! Thanks to all the generous Middlebury alumni who stepped up and helped us get to 2,500 gifts and $150,000 for financial aid. We could not have reached our goal without your help! Special thanks to former trustee and parent Ken Wilson P’01, ’03 and trustee Dave ’76 and Michele Mittelman P’08, ’10, ’13 for their generous donations to make the challenge happen!
Your gift to Middlebury helps teach exceptional young people how to understand the world and contribute to it. With its focus on the environment and international education, the College prepares its students to tackle the world's most pressing challenges and to recognize and develop new opportunities.
Your Middlebury education was made possible because generations of alumni and friends shared with us through the Annual Fund. Your gifts help students aspire to make the world a better place, knowing that those who came before them are behind them all the way.
President Ron Liebowitz will step down at the end of this academic year, on June 30, 2015, after more than a decade of exceptional leadership. Liebowitz, Middlebury’s 16th president since the founding of the College in 1800, has served in the office since 2004. He has also inspired generations of students as a faculty member in the Department of Geography and has held other senior positions in the institution's administration over the past 30 years.
Alumni, parents, and friends have asked how they can honor the president and his wife Jessica for their accomplishments and service to Middlebury. Three funds have been established to honor the Liebowitzes: the Ron and Jessica Liebowitz Scholarship Fund, the Ron and Jessica Liebowitz Centennial Fellowships Fund, and the Ron and Jessica Liebowitz Fund for Innovation. Donors may contribute to any of these funds or make a gift for any other purpose in honor of the Liebowitzes.
