We want to make the world a better place through social innovation.
We are educators.
We have worked abroad and at home.
How do we equip students to explore and find their place?
What skills, knowledge, and tools do students need to meet their aspirations? How do we teach them?
What can we learn from failures?
Located at our Bread Loaf campus, Middlebury’s June Forum is a chance for colleagues from across the U.S. and beyond to share ideas on building the best opportunities for students who want to make a difference in the world. (See highlights from our previous June Forums). This year’s June Forum theme will be: “Local to Global: Exploring the Changemaking Continuum.”
Some of the topics we will consider include:
Transcending borders Facilitating dialogue across difference
Community-based learning Global learning beyond study abroad
Integrating Identity Storytelling and Social Change
Frameworks Across Disciplines
Pricing (includes room and board)
Early Bird: $450 (through April 1st) Regular: $500
VT Local (no housing): $275
The Bread Loaf campus, the location of our retreat, is in the small town of Ripton in the heart of Central Vermont. We are a four-hour drive from Boston, five hours from NYC. If you plan to fly, we are one hour from Burlington VT (the closest airport) and two hours from Albany NY (the next closest). (We recommend at least allowing for 2 to 2.5 hours of flexible time between landing in Burlington and the 2:00 PM beginning of the retreat on Saturday the 11th.) If you want to take advantage of the New England setting, renting a car makes some sense; otherwise you can arrange a rideshare through Middlebury Transit. We will provide more information on our confirmation email
