Middlebury's MiddCORE at Sierra Nevada College
MiddCORE is a mentor-driven, experiential-learning program associated with Middlebury College. The course builds skills, creates opportunities, and expands networks for tomorrow's leaders and innovators.
One person with an idea, even with a great idea, changes nothing. Visionaries succeed with leadership skills, communications skills, and entrepreneurial insights. Building those skills and insights is the CORE of MiddCORE.
The key to the MiddCORE experience is our mentors. Each has a proven record of accomplishment in their fields, and a demonstrated ability to teach others the tools for success. MiddCORE mentors develop hands-on challenges that inspire students to think creatively, operate outside their comfort zone, and deal with ambiguity. They help students build capacities, identify opportunities, and become effective leaders.
Through its flagship immersion course, its academic internship program, and its workshop series, MiddCORE prepares students to engage the world. It is a rare opportunity for the leaders of today to share their experiences and expertise with the changemakers of tomorrow. Students leave confident, resourceful and prepared to lead.
For the first time ever, Middlebury is running the four-week immersion course at Lake Tahoe in Sierra Nevada, and is inviting undergraduates and recent professionals from all over the world to apply. Applications are open now! The first deadline is January 15th.
