Middlebury promotes critical engagement, collaboration and full participation within and across the diverse communities who work, live and learn together at our institution.

The collective efforts of our various offices, departments, programs and organizations seek to bring together teachers and scholars to explore issues related to identity and culture, to examine the impact of power and privilege, and to celebrate and affirm diverse communities through their heritage, their resistance, and their collective efforts for change.

The goal of this site is to provide institutional resources for the students, staff, and faculty in our greater Middlebury community.
