ON LEADING A LIFE OF MEANING AND PURPOSE: Wednesday, January 27- Friday, January 29
Please join the Center for Entrepreneurship as it presents the fifth annual January Symposium: As Middlebury enters a new era for global liberal learning under President Laurie Patton, we and our partners thought that it was a good time, in this liberal arts setting, to help students to begin to reflect on their emerging lives and to share tools about moving forward in search of meaning and purpose. As summarized in this program, we have a wonderful array of colleagues lined up for this, from our inspiring Vision Award winners to many faculty, staff, and students. We welcome you here and look forward to your active participation.
