You can find opportunities.
Locally and around the world, Community Engagement helps Middlebury students explore civic identity, develop essential life-long skills, and pursue projects in collaboration with communities—all while striving to contribute to the public good.
We see engagement opportunities as more than "just" volunteering or "just" service. We're interested in the experiences that tie it all together: your education, your interests, and your compassion. You'll find that when you really connect with an opportunity, it becomes so much greater than the sum of its parts.
We can help.
Our work cuts across any number of disciplines. At Community Suppers, you learn the crucial difference between providing a nutritious meal and sharing a nutritious meal. On a MAlt trip you could find yourself learning about fracking in rural Pennsylvania or the relationship between gender and generational poverty in the Dominican Republic. Wherever your interests lie, we can help you find the right direction.
Whether you are volunteering for the first time, continuing with a cause you care about, or pursuing upper level community-connected research, come visit us at 118 South Main to explore the possibilities.
Community Engagement prepares students for lives of meaning and impact through service, scholarship, and citizenship. Its programs work to strengthen communities and contribute to the public good. - CE Mission Statement
