Middlebury

Diversity and Community

 

Our students, faculty, and staff come from backgrounds as diverse as there are human fingerprints.

Middlebury College strives to create a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, and ally (LGBTQQA…) community members. We have many active and welcoming resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, and questioning individuals and allies.

These resources are not exhaustive, as we are always adding and updating the information. If you have any questions, can't find something, or have a suggestion for a resource please contact Jennifer Herrera, assistant director of Student Activities at jherrera@middlebury.edu.
