About the Center 

The Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs (RCGA) promotes Middlebury's goal of advancing global understanding that radiates from a core linguistic and cultural competency.

RCGA works with a faculty committee to create co-curricular programming that expands opportunities for students and supports faculty in their teaching and professional development.

Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, c. 1570                                                            

Each year, RCGA holds a number of signature programs and events, including: 

  • Lectures by distinguished scholars and professionals
  • Annual symposia and colloquia
  • Annual conferences
  • A student internship program

Students and faculty are encouraged to apply to host an event by filling out an event proposal form. At the beginning of each academic year, RCGA issues an annual report covering the Center's activities for the prior academic year.
