MiddCORE Workshops are designed for students who want to build skills and make connections, but who cannot commit to the full immersion course.
During MiddCORE’s fall and spring workshop series, Middlebury students can sign up to spend an afternoon with MiddCORE mentors to develop skills in areas such as leadership, collaboration, persuasive communication, strategic thinking, empathy, negotiation, idea creation, and crisis management.
