The Value of Discomfort

Dance

Learning to dance with others can be awkward—and intimate. Beginners step on toes, stumble, and feel silly. To progress, they must take chances and step outside their comfort zones.

Individual threads are interwoven to create whole cloth that is completely different from the threads that make it. The individual threads give strength, character, and complexity to the cloth.

New on the Web: Explore what diversity means; find news, blogs, and videos

Two additions to the Middlebury Web site for 2009 are designed to help visitors better understand the importance of diversity at the College, and to provide easier access to news items, videos and other online content.

At the Web site for the Office for Institutional Planning & Diversity (OIPD), you’ll find a link to a new Flash project that offers visitors — in particular, prospective students, faculty and staff — as well as current members of the community a look at what diversity really means at Middlebury. With words, images, video, music, and slide shows, the new site tells the story of the College’s efforts “to make Middlebury a model of what a 21st century liberal arts institution truly should be—a welcoming learning community—and to build and maintain a diverse and inclusive community.”

Also new for 2009 is an updated “News Headlines” page, accessible from the home page. The page includes not only the most recent headlines, but also links to event schedules, College-related videos, blogs by students, faculty and administrators, other online sources of news from on and off campus, and even the local weather.
