The Anderson Freeman Resource Center (AFC), located in Carr Hall, works to promote an inclusive and welcoming learning environment for the Middlebury community.

In particular, our work support the following individuals:

  • Students of color
  • First-generation college students
  • Students from low-income backgrounds
  • LGBTQ+ students
  • Any other students who have been historically underrepresented or marginalized in U.S. higher education

In conjunction with the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE), the AFC provides resources and programming that encourage the holistic development of Middlebury’s increasingly diverse undergraduate students as they attain their goals of academic achievement and personal growth while exploring and sustaining their identities and cultures.

“The goal of social justice education is full and equal participation of all groups in a society that is mutually shaped to meet their needs. Social justice includes a vision of society that is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure.”
