Option #1: Middlebury DLINQ: Exploring technology/digital in education and citizenship
Middlebury’s Office of Digital Learning and Inquiry (DLINQ) was launched in Jan 2018 as a result of unifying the Academic Technology Group in Middlebury, the Digital Learning Commons in Monterey, and the Office of Digital Learning. This internship will likely involve designing a system to monitor and measure the Middlebury community’s engagement with DLINQ’s mission and researching market opportunities for online and hybrid courses and programs for Middlebury’s Institute for International Studies.

Option #2: Opportunities Credit Union: Engaging Impact Investors
A fantastic example of a social enterprise blending solid business practices for community development ends, Opportunities Credit Union (OCU) provides deposit products, ebanking, loans, financial education and counseling to improve the financial stability of community members who other financial institutions may find challenging to serve. In this internship, two Middlebury students will develop and begin implementing a plan for engaging new impact investors. We will need to understand who invested in OCU in the past and identify the needs and interests of today’s impact investors. We will review OCUs financial and community impact track record to create a compelling pitch to these investors, including developing innovative investment or support mechanisms. Finally, we will visit high potential impact investors and explore working relationships with them. Learn more in Handshake.
