A Global Call to Heal the Planet

What are the global limits to sustainable growth and development? Can we stay within them and how? Join an inspiring and insightful celebration of “The Limits to Growth” and its lead author Donella Meadows. “The Limits to Growth” had a profound influence on the early global environmental debate when published in 1972 by The Club of Rome. Donella Meadows enlightened that debate with her systems approach to understanding the dynamics and human dimensions of our environmental crisis before she passed away in 2000. 

Join this amazing evening with Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies, Middlebury College and keynote speaker Sandrine Dixson-Decleve, Co-President, Club of Rome.

WHEN: Wednesday, September 28, 2022

TIME: 7:00 PM

LOCATION: Mahaney Arts Center, Olin C. Robison Concert Hall

Volunteer for the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT)

For the past two years, students have helped the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT) as note and minute takers during their board meetings, and they are looking to find some new volunteers!

The MALT board currently meets as a whole board every other month, on the third Tuesday from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM. For this academic year, they’ll be in November, January, March, and May. The note taker makes a difference by recording the decisions of the board as well as essential points of conversation and debate.  This allows all board members to actively participate in the meeting and deliberations.

The value for a student is that they see how a small conservation non-profit operates, plans, and makes decisions. For a student interested in conservation or non-profit management, this is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of the institutional infrastructure needed for a small non-profit to succeed.

MALT’s board member, Patrick Ganey, is happy to answer any questions a student has about the role.  Email and texting are the best ways to be in touch, patrick.ganey[at] and  802-377-9733.

Have You Ever Wondered If You Were Qualified for the Job?

The right way to read an entry-level job description

Handshake recently published the article “The right way to read an entry-level job description”. Click here to read the complete article including tips on how to read the required qualifications section. If you’ve ever wondered about whether you should actually apply for a job or internship because you don’t meet al the qualifications, think again. “Even though the heading says “required,” this list describes the ideal candidate, who may not exist! If you meet at least 60-70% of the requirements, and you feel you’d excel in the role, apply anyway. (Use your judgment: don’t apply to a role that asks for fluency in Spanish if you only took Spanish 101.)” Learn also how to spot a scam–is it too good to be true?!
