MiddCORE Workshops

Upcoming workshops include Negotiation on October 26 from 3 to 7pm (with a pizza break) by Paul Cramer, an experienced negotiator and Middlebury alum.  If you want to learn (and practice) strategies that will help you negotiate your first job offer, buy that car, or mediate a disagreement among friends or family members, this is the place to start.  The other workshop is Activating Empathy by Professor Jon Isham on November 2. There are still a few spots left in both workshops. For more information and to sign up, email
