For Community Partners

Annual Events

Midd Action Fair
For more than twenty years Middlebury College has kicked off the new academic year by hosting the MiddAction Fair, an event where community partners are invited on campus to meet directly with students to promote awareness and collaboratoin. The Fair attracts dozens of community organizations and hundreds of Middlebury College students.
This year's event will take place on Thursday, September 13, 2019 from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in McCullough lawn. For more information, email Liz Cleveland, from the Center for Community Engagement.
MiddView Community Engagement Orientation Trips
Every fall and winter MiddView organizes more than 65 orientation trips for more than 550 incoming first year students over their first weekend on campus. Center for Community Engagement partners with MiddView for ten of those trips, sending students all over the state to get first-hand experience helping meet community-identified needs. 
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
In 1994, Congress designated the federal holiday commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birth (the third Monday every January) to be a national day of service, currently the only federal holiday with this designation.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an opportunity to reflect on what the legacy of MLK means in our current historical moment. Dr. King refused to accept racial and economic injustice, oppression, or violence and spent his life fighting for change through community action and nonviolent protest. In that spirit, the Center for Community Engagement supports students, faculty, and staff through connections to local opportunities for service and activism that honor the legacy of Dr. King.


United Way Days of Caring
Each September, the United Way of Addison County hosts its Days of Caring, two days where community members can assist nearby health and human service agencies. The first day is a weekday where local businesses are encouraged to give their employees the day off to contribute. The second day, on a weekend, is a great day for Middlebury students to reach out and pitch in.
