Campus Open Forum

The Office of the Dean of the College, Community Council, and the Student Government Association are excited to announce our first collaborative Campus Open Forum Event.

The topic for this first event will be Sexual Assault and Resources on College Campuses. We will hear from Middlebury’s Sexual Assault Oversight Committee, the SGA Director of Health and Wellness, and other relevant groups. One goal of this gathering is to learn more about the current resources on campus and to create a space for feedback regarding ways we can improve sexual assault prevention and education on our campus. Moreover, all community members will have the opportunity to express their views.

Additionally, at these monthly events, students and all members of the community will have the opportunity to speak on any topic in addition to the featured topic.

Our first event is scheduled for Wednesday November 7 at 7:30pm in Crossroads Café.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend! There will be cookies.

Best wishes,

Shirley Collado, Dean of the College
Charlie Arnowitz, Student Government Association President
Barrett Smith, Community Council Co-Chair

MiddNotes: Communicating with All Students

A message from Shirley Collado, Dean of the College

Dear Students,

I write with an important announcement about the future of all-student emails.

LIS has announced the launch of the portal, an online gateway to information about Middlebury, like events, dining hall menus, and more. If you visit the student portal at go/students, you will see a module called MiddNotes, which features news and announcements for you. MiddNotes is also located at go/middnotes or, if you are off-campus,

In an effort to reduce the number of all-student emails, MiddNotes will become the primary means of communicating with the entire student body (excluding announcements related to emergencies, policy, or compliance, or other special exceptions). If you have an announcement to share with your fellow students, please visit go/post ( Once you login with your Middlebury username and password, you may post to the blog. Messages will be approved for final posting by the SGA in a timely fashion. Please note that you will not be permitted to post events; you should submit all events to the College events calendar. You should also note that MiddNotes is not limited to official student organizations; if you have information to share that would be of interest to the entire student body, you are welcome to submit it.

Thank you for your cooperation as the College works to streamline internal communications. If you have any questions about MiddNotes, please contact Jennifer Herrera at
