The Center for Community Engagement at Middlebury College publishes an e-newsletter with weekly community engagement opportunities each Monday of the academic year (September-May, except during breaks). About 600 students open the newsletter weekly. To share an opportunity with students, complete this form by Friday at noon the week prior to when you would like your opportunity to be included in the Monday newsletter. If you share a posting far in advance, we will wait to post it no sooner than 3 weeks before the deadline/event to maximize student response.
Post content : Fill in as many fields as possible, as long as they are relevant, as students respond best when there are clear deadlines, time/commitment expectations, ways to learn more, and people to contact. Make sure you have a contact person who will coordinate interest, as any interested students respond directly to the phone/email in the post. If the opportunity is not remote, not on Middlebury College's campus and is not within walking distance, and you can offer transportation, please state that in the post. Otherwise, students can use their own transportation or perhaps seek a car rental through our office.
