Learn by doing.

The Privilege & Poverty Academic Cluster at Middlebury critically examines the material, social and environmental contexts of economic inequality. We are a learning community that brings classrooms and communities together to address the causes and consequences of poverty, and cultivate lifelong ethical participation in society.

The Cluster is not a formal major or minor, but it is a program with coherence, relevance, and intellectual depth that complements any other major course of study. Participating faculty include a range of professors from across academic disciplines so that students study specific interests with depth, breadth, and connection.
