The Environmental Studies program has been awarded a grant by the Northern New England Campus Compact for a project led by Diane Munroe, Coordinator for Community Based Environmental Studies. The grant is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Education program and is intended to support NNECC’s Campuses for Environmental Stewardship efforts. The grant will fund efforts by the ES program and individual affiliated faculty to incorporate community-connected experiences focused on the topical areas of either climate change or water quality into their courses next year. Participating faculty include Molly Costanza-Robinson (Chemistry, Biochemistry and ES), Michelle McCauley (Psychology), Jeff Munroe (Geology), Jonathan Isham (Economics and ES), Rebecca Kneale Gould (Religion and ES), and Catherine Ashcraft (ES).
The Jack Miller Center has awarded the College a grant to help with the expenses of Constitution Day events to be held at Middlebury this fall. This grant is the result of a proposal submitted by Keegan Callanan, a new member of the Political Science department, with the assistance of Murray Dry. The Jack Miller Center is “dedicated to enriching education in America’s founding principles and history.”
