The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead is both a retrospective look at the achievements of the 2012-2013 academic year at the Monterey Institute, and a roadmap of the Institute’s plans for the next three years.

Grounded in the vision we have pursued for the past few years to achieve academic excellence, financial sustainability, and global prominence as a graduate school of Middlebury College, The Road Ahead both acknowledges how far we have come, and provides some signposts and mile-markers to guide us as we make our way forward.

Some of the signposts direct our path toward strengthening immersive professional education, sharpening our commitment to linguistic and inter-cultural competence, expanding and developing our non-degree programs, and building more and stronger bridges between programs at the Monterey Institute and those at other Middlebury entities (e.g., The Language Schools, Middlebury Schools Abroad, the Bread Loaf School of English, and of course the Undergraduate College).

Among the mile-markers we hope to reach are defined targets for enrollment growth and fundraising, as well as consistent assessment of learning outcomes that demonstrate academic excellence.  Along the way, we will continue to invest in our human capital and our infrastructure in order to support our objectives.
