That’s how college students describe MiddCORE: a four-week summer program for current college students and recent graduates who want to develop the SKILLS, EXPERIENCE, and CONFIDENCE to be successful in life and work.
MiddCORE is a residential program where students live on the beach at Asilomar and classes are held at Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey June 1–29, 2019.
Through an intensive daily schedule of small-group classes and mentor-led workshops, students develop skills in innovation, strategic thinking, and leadership.
The program is highly collaborative and hands-on, and students work closely with each other and more than 50 mentors from the top leading fields and professions.
“My month at MiddCORE was a turning point in my education. Every single day you are challenged to collaborate, be creative, and jump into situations that may have previously scared you. The people I met during MiddCORE are now some of my closest friends, as we not only went through struggles and successes together, but we got to explore an amazing new place in our off-time. I would absolutely recommend MiddCORE to anyone looking for a valuable adventure and an entire new network of talented connections.”Nina Sweeney, MiddCORE graduate

Project Description: The Planning for Resiliency Cohort will include a Design Intern, Ecology Intern, and GIS intern. All three interns will work with the Senior Preservation Services Manager and the Team Leader of Property Care as a cohort to undertake the second phase of a project titled Planning for Resiliency. The project will be primarily housed at Historic New England’s Lyman Estate offices in Waltham, Mass., with supervised field and other site visits to properties north of Boston in Essex County, Mass. The cohort interns will complete an integrated project addressing climate-driven threats at four seventeenth-century museum properties in Newbury, Mass. The cohort will produce a report that examines and identifies current and projected climate change impacts on these museum properties. That report will be used within the Historic New England to formulate adaptation strategies and to coordinate more effectively with local and regional resiliency planning efforts. It is anticipated that the content of the report will also be shared at an international conference on sustainability and historic buildings. The project is plan to engage three interns with quantitative, scientific, and/or design/communication skills to collaborate on a study of climate driven threats to these properties in three areas: 1) stormwater/rainwater management in the gutter and drainage systems of the properties; 2) plant species at the properties that are threatened by climate change and a survey of invasive plants and pests that might impact landscapes, structures, and the collections at this properties and have been documented to be migrating north; and 3) GIS study of coastal and inland inundation, infrastructure, and access impacts.These studies will provide the data and assessments needed for Historic New England to plan for adaptive strategies to be developed and implemented for the subject properties in the near future.
Deadline date: Sunday, March 31
