Imagine Monterey and You: Forging Faculty Connections with the Monterey Institute

Midd MIIS Faculty Connections Panel 

Faculty Presentation and Discussion – Tuesday, November 12 – 4:30 p.m. – Axinn 229

Are you interested in learning more about your colleagues at Monterey? Teaching and working with graduate students? Spending some of your winter in California?  Many of your Middlebury colleagues have taught Winter Term courses and workshops, given invited lectures, developed scholarly collaborations with Monterey colleagues, and even spent a semester at the Institute.

Five Middlebury faculty members – Cat Ashcraft, Pat Manley, Andrea Olsen, Sarah Stroup, and Rich Wolfson – will share their experiences connecting with MIIS and provide information about how interested others might forge their own connections.  Bring your questions; we have reserved lots of time for discussion.  Moderated by Susan Baldridge.

Sponsored by the Office of Planning and Assessment – 443-5089
