A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

The Environmental Studies senior seminar works with a community partner every semester on an environmental project. Past examples include working with Vermont Family Forests to develop management guidelines, making suggestions for nearby towns interested in solar power, and a wide range of other projects.
Additionally, Middlebury College contributes to the area's regional transit system to ensure the availability of alternative transportation in the area. The College also regularly collaborates with the Town of Middlebury. For example, there were two representatives from the town of Middlebury on the committee that wrote the 2008 Campus Master Plan, which has sustainability as a theme.
