Dean of College and Chief Diversity Officer
Dean of the College
The Office of the Dean of the College and Chief Diversity Officer oversees student life and diversity initiatives at Middlebury College. The office works closely with all Middlebury constituencies to ensure that our students, staff, and faculty have the opportunity and the encouragement to participate fully in the campus community.
They work to build and maintain a diverse, inclusive, and vibrant community, representing a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints. Within this community, they strive to create an environment in which mutual respect is paramount and which prizes and nurtures the qualities of openness and the willingness to embrace personal and academic challenges.
In keeping with the College’s commitment to being a model of 21st-century liberal arts education, in which learning takes place everywhere—both inside and outside of the classroom—the office works closely with a variety of programs on campus to enrich the intellectual and personal development of all Middlebury students.
The DOC/CDO assumes oversight of the student affairs division and advances diversity initiatives in that area, while also supporting diversity initiatives across the institution related to staff, faculty and the academic program.
In addition to the Dean of the College and Chief Diversity Officer, there is a Special Assistant and Senior Advisor for Diversity Initiatives, Jennifer Herrera. She coordinates and oversees several campus-wide diversity initiatives, special projects, and communications for the Dean of the College and Chief Diversity Officer.
The Student Government Association also has a Diversity Committee.
