Summer training on international development brings together College and Institute students and alumni

The Design, Partnering, Management and Innovation (DPMI) Program will bring together graduate students from the Middlebury Institute (MIIS), undergraduates from the College as well as alumni and current practitioners for two week trainings in Monterey and DC this summer. The two programs will include 36 current and aspiring international development professionals representing 11 nationalities including India, Japan, Germany, Uganda, Mozambique, the Dominican Republic, Liberia, Jamaica, Nepal, the Philippines and the US. The Monterey program includes five Middlebury College students and 16 Middlebury Institute students. The DC program includes eight Middlebury College participants, two alumni (one from the College and one from MIIS), and one Middlebury Institute graduate student.
The program immerses participants in the challenges of international development and social change learning while providing a set of tools preparing participants for positions in the international development sector. Faculty include Dr. Beryl Levinger, Chair of the Development Practice and Policy Program at the Middlebury Institute and Academic Director of the DPMI Program and Evan Bloom, founder and managing partner of Root Change, an international nonprofit focused on helping social innovators scale-up enduring solutions to social and economic problems.
The program in Monterey will take place between May 21-June 1 with an identical training offered at the Middlebury Center in DC  June 4-15. The program looks forward to again welcoming MIIS, Middlebury College, and alumni to the next program offering January 7-25, 2019 in Monterey.
