Apply the innovation principles of design thinking to the wicked problem of designing your life at and after Middlebury during a series of Studios being offered through the Innovation Hub and Center for Careers and Internships.

This studio will create the space necessary for you to reflect on your own agency and to map your own energy engagement while helping you see trends and make adjustments to navigate more smoothly during your 4 years at Middlebury or at any time in your life.
