Open Meeting this Thursday

Dear Staff:

Welcome to the start of the new academic year!   Staff Council would like to invite you to our first open meeting of the fall on Thursday, September 12th at 1:00pm ET / 10:00am PT. Please join in person in Bicentennial Hall Room 216 or remotely by zoom at

The priority of the meeting is to hear from you! We’d like to hear your questions, concerns, ideas, and comments.  To start this conversation, we hope you participate in a Staff Council questionnaire (not required to attend):

  • Name – Optional
  • As a staff member, what is most important to you now?
  • What do you value in your work and in Middlebury?
  • What would you/your department be doing if you were 20% bolder?
  • What have been the high points/bright spots for you that you would want others to know about?
  • What have been the low points/challenges for you that you would want others to know about?
  • Anything else you would like to share?

At our Thursday meeting, the floor will be open to you and we’ll discuss the questionnaire findings. We’ll introduce you to our recently appointed members: Ginnie Bukowski – District L  and Grace O’Dell – District M (non-voting position) from MIIS, as well as the rest of Staff Council.   

Lastly, going forward, we’d like to invite you to meet with us on a monthly basis. We’ll be opening the floor for your comments, questions, and concerns at the start of each of our monthly meetings: the first Thursday of every month,  from 1:00-1:15 PM in Davis Lib Room 145 or zoom at

We look forward to working with you this year,
