This project will collect and document the actions taken by student, faculty, and staff activists while shedding light on the knowledge they have produced regarding the institution. To this end, the project, via the critical gaze of past activism, will foreground which mechanisms and manifestations of systemic racism activists have targeted, thus providing further direction to our institutional anti-racist work.

“We hope to recognize the work of the activists and prompt the Middlebury community to consider anti-racist institutional changes that effectively protect and empower marginalized identities on campus.” – Mia Pangasnan
