Coalition for Dismantling Antisemitism at Middlebury
The Coalition for Dismantling Antisemitism at Middlebury aims to create opportunities for students, staff, and faculty to learn more about antisemitism and how Jewish students experience it on campus and elsewhere. Antisemitism has been on the rise in the U.S. and on college campuses, adding urgency to this work. Please read this statement about our work. This webpage is a collection of educational and other resources that we have gathered in order to raise awareness of and address antisemitism at Middlebury.

The Vibrant Jewish Community at Middlebury
We believe that a key component of dismantling antisemitism here is to continue to create a warm, dynamic, and creative Jewish life on Middlebury’s campus, open and welcoming to all Jewish and non-Jewish members of the campus community. The College provides many avenues for engaging with Judaism, from student organizations to academic programs.
