President's Course on Water

Heads-up to anyone who helps students find things-

Next week, the first President’s Course at Middlebury and Midd-Monterey will begin. It’s called Water in an Insecure World: Symbol, Resources, or Commodity (INTD 0285A). 20 Middlebury students and 20 MIIS students are enrolled in the course. In addition, alumni have been invited to follow along separately. You might receive questions like the ones below….

Where and when does the course meet?

  • For enrolled students at Middlebury, the course meets on Monday nights downstairs in LIB105a. (Part of each session will be spent online in a group videoconference with MIIS students, and part will be smaller in-person discussions on each campus.)
  • Alumni have been invited follow along at their own pace separately.

Where is the course website?

  • For enrolled students, there is a Canvas site. Middlebury students will get to the site via the Middlebury course hub. They’ll need to log in, then look for a link under “Resources.”
