In June 2012, the Middlebury Center for Social Entrepreneurship hosted a forum on social entrepreneurship in the liberal arts at Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf campus. Staff and faculty from 17 colleges and universities gathered for three days to discuss goals for transforming their institutions. From June 10-13, 2013 the center will host its second forum titled Social Entrepreneurship in the Liberal Arts: What’s Working and What Isn’t? The focus of this forum will be to discuss lessons learned and will be an opportunity for institutions to learn from one another’s best practices.

Thoughts and Constructive Comments from Participants in the 2012 June Forum
[The forum overall] was interesting and exposed me to the theory. I like that it was interactive!
Helpful to have generous amount of free time for one-on-one or small group discussions and open space technology session.
I could write 40 pages about why this place is perfect. Can’t wait to come back. This will continue to be a huge draw.
My goal was to gain more insight about how other liberal arts institutions were thinking about social entrepreneurship and I fully achieved this.
[The story of self] was an interesting exercise, and a good way to get the conference started. I think I will use the ‘what matters to you’ question with our student leaders.
I thought [the panel on the liberal arts] was an interesting discussion and I liked having the faculty perspectives.
[Open source technology session was a] great model for the small group discussion to have people generate their own topics!
