Community-Connected Teaching, Learning, and Research

Finding praxis in the liberal arts... We want to help you create opportunities for your students to link what they learn in your classroom with applied work in the community. Through community-connected projects, students will meld theory with practice and connect their Middlebury education to the wider goals of our global society.

Such projects are becoming more and more common in higher education. The Association of American College and Universities now prescribes community-based learning as one of several high impact practices in teaching the liberal arts.
