Lecture/Event Proposal Form

Submitted forms will be routed to the Director of RCFIA (Allison Stanger) and Assistant Director of RCFIA (Charlotte Tate). Prior to submitting the Lecture/Event Proposal Form, please consult GUIDELINES at the bottom of the form.


  • Use this form for single lectures. To submit proposals for symposia and conferences, please email the following to Allison Stanger, Charlotte Tate, and Martha Baldwin: (1) program description, (2) tentative schedule, (3) estimated budget, (4) anticipated funding sources and amounts.
  • RCFIA avoids cosponsoring conflicting events. Before submitting a proposal, please check the College Events Calendar (http://cat.middlebury.edu/events/).
  • When choosing a lecture date, please keep in mind regularly scheduled College events such as monthly faculty meetings, midterm recess, and winter carnival. Remember, too, that accommodations can be difficult to secure on Columbus Day weekend, Fall Family Weekend, and at other times when the College is hosting major events.
