Middlebury Magazine is dedicated to communicating the high level of academic and cultural achievement at Middlebury College; the human condition as exhibited by its alumni, faculty, students, and staff; and the intellectual, cultural, and social life on campus and beyond.
We seek to forge an intellectual and emotional connection with our readers, and in doing so, strengthening their bond with Middlebury College. The magazine seeks to highlight faculty scholarship and teaching; to report on student academic, artistic, and athletic accomplishment; and to illuminate the professional and personal lives of Middlebury alumni.
Middlebury is a liberal arts college with a strong sense of place in the Champlain Valley of Vermont, yet it also has global components and a respective global outlook and mission. Through the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (California); the College’s ten language schools, which operate on the Vermont campus and in Oakland, California, each summer; its graduate School of English, which has sites in three states and two countries; and its Schools Abroad, which operate in sixteen countries, Middlebury stretches to all corners of the Earth, and its incumbent on the magazine to reflect this global reach.
We strive to capture on the page and screen the sensibilities of the College and its alumni. In this manner, we should be provocative, humorous, and challenging. We must be inquisitive, creative, and vibrant. Our graduates (and students and faculty, too) are adventurous, but also reflective; inspirational, yet largely humble; stewards of the mind, but also the soul. Middlebury Magazine should be seen this way, as well.
Middlebury Magazine exists in both printed and digital form. The highly-acclaimed printed magazine is mailed to nearly 50,000 readers in January, April, July, and October. Our print subscribers live in all 50 states and on every continent (except for Antarctica) around the globe.
This digital version features content published in the printed magazine, as well as web-exclusive components, such as regular blog postings of news and reviews, the highly regarded How Did You Get Here multimedia series, videos, and—coming soon—podcasting.
