Our wonderful students reached out to Staff Council last week and asked us to forward this Thank You card to all of you – please check it out. We love our students!
The Sustainability Solutions Lab (SSL) invites you to participate in the first Creative Climate Art Contest.
This contest is designed to educate and inspire members of our Middlebury community to personally contribute to Energy2028—the college’s commitment to reduce energy consumption by 25%, power the campus with 100% renewable energy, divest from the fossil fuel industry, and incorporate sustainability education into everything we do.
To participate, submit an original work of art (i.e. a painting, drawing, print, collage, or other visual art form) that relates to Middlebury, showcases your creativity, and calls for climate action and environmental justice on campus. No formal art training is necessary—artists and non-artists alike are encouraged to submit! Submissions will be received through this submission form (go link: go/creativeclimate/) or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any member of the Middlebury community can participate. We encourage current students, alumni, faculty and staff to submit artwork. We hope your art will function as a public reminder of our commitment to making Middlebury a more sustainable and just community.
The deadline for submissions is August 1st, 2020.
The winning posters will be showcased around campus and distributed to the class of 2024 with credit for your work. The winning artists will receive $75 to donate to an environmental justice non-profit organization of the artist’s choice (suggested NGOs will be provided). Any questions can be directed to email@example.com.
We have heard that Middlebury College staff are struggling with the balance of homeschooling and working full-time from home. Our wonderful undergraduate students are offering to support staff during the COVID-19 quarantine by organizing a Middlebury College student-run network of volunteer tutors for our school-aged dependents (K-12th grade). A small group of students learned of this struggle through social media and quickly organized 100+ student volunteers who are willing to tutor in a number of specific subjects. Student coordinators will do their best to match your children with volunteer tutor/s over Zoom for the remainder of the semester.
Please note, we are expecting many will take advantage of this gracious opportunity, and there are only so many tutors. Please be patient and understanding as the coordinators find the right match for your needs or if they cannot find a match for your child(ren) at all.
We thank our students, tremendously, for always caring so genuinely for our staff.
We (Staff Council) wanted to share with you an exciting opportunity for College staff that might be struggling with balancing homeschooling and working full-time. Our wonderful undergraduate students would like to offer support to college staff during the COVID-19 quarantine by organizing a Middlebury College student-run network of volunteer tutors for our school-aged dependents (K-12th grade). This small group of students quickly learned of this struggle that many are experiencing and organized a large group of student volunteers who would be willing to help tutor. They will do their best to match your kids up with volunteer tutor/s over Zoom for the remainder of the semester.
Please note, we are expecting many will take advantage of this gracious opportunity, and there are only so many tutors. Please be patient and understanding as the coordinators find the right match for your needs and/or if they cannot find a match for your student(s) at all.
We thank our students, tremendously, for always caring so deeply for our staff.
