As our communities grow increasingly fragmented, we see a pressing need and relevance for understanding how to transcend borders, facilitate dialogue across difference, leverage storytelling for social change, and cultivate a new generation of development practitioners. This year’s June Forum hosted by the Middlebury College Center for Creativity, Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (CCISE) brings together curious and inspired educators and practitioners at Middlebury’s Bread Loaf mountain campus to exchange ideas about how to best equip students to learn and work for positive change both at home and around the world.
The keynote speaker will be Michael Sorrell, President of Paul Quinn College. He will discuss the process of combining rigorous academics, experiential learning, entrepreneurship, and locally-minded service in pursuit of positive social change.
In this rural, retreat-like setting, guests will have the opportunity to forge connections and partnerships around the fire, over a glass of wine, in a workshop, or on a walk in the woods. Please visit our website for more information; register on the Middlebury online box office, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Educators, social change agents, and development practitioners from around the world are welcome! We hope to see you this June!
