Robert is our man about campus on a daily basis. His primary role is to gather, develop, and write the stories that exemplify everyday life at Middlebury. From the remarkable things students do, to the “behind the scenes” stories about the College’s inner workings, Robert brings it to life.
After receiving a bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College, he launched his career as a newspaper reporter and photographer in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. He came to Middlebury in 1997 as marketing and communications director for the Language Schools and Schools Abroad where, among other things, he coined the tagline “No English Spoken Here.”
