The Middlebury School of the Environment (SOE), located in China, has suspended its 2020 session due to the impact of the coronavirus. The School of the Environment is a six-week, summer program for college undergraduates that takes place in Yunnan Province, China, with dual sites in Kunming and Dali.

In a communication to applicants, administrators said they had been forced to make a very difficult decision but wanted to give students time to make alternative summer plans.

Middlebury is planning for the program to resume in 2021
