The President’s Course is convened by Laurie Patton, President of Middlebury, and is taught by faculty from across Middlebury’s programs. The course addresses important and “wicked” issues from interdisciplinary perspectives and creates a diverse learning environment by including students from Middlebury’s undergraduate and graduate programs. The President’s Course is offered for credit to current enrolled Middlebury and MIIS students only. 

In spring 2017, the President’s Course will focus on water issues. View the Topics & Schedule page for more information.

This website offers some course information and resources for a public audience. The public is welcome to view the course schedule, readings, and lecture videos. The public will not be able to enroll in the course, audit the course, or participate in live class sessions. However, you can watch recordings of the class lectures, which will be made available free and open to the public 3-4 days after the live class session. The lectures will not be livestreamed and some lecture videos may not be shared with the public, at the lecturers’ discretion.

The President’s Course website was created by the Office of Digital Learning at Middlebury.
