Middlebury in DC

Our new office in Washington DC gives students, faculty and staff from Middlebury College and the Monterey Institute of International Studies access to a wealth of resources in the nation's capital.
With videoconferencing capabilities, the office can connect students at any of Middlebury’s schools and programs with leading experts and policy makers who might otherwise not be available to travel to Vermont, California, or one of Middlebury’s dozens of Schools Abroad campuses.

Middlebury in DC is also a hub for alumni, and hosts regional events as well as appearances and talks by faculty and alumni authors. In addition, it is home to the Washington office of the Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

Programming envisioned for Middlebury in DC includes internship opportunities, short courses and workshops, and DC semester options in some Monterey Institute degree programs.
