Welcome to the Middlebury Disorientation Guide!

*** See our response to the op ed (“Koch or Woke”) by members of the Middlebury Independent here. ***

This site serves as a living hub for collective memory, passed down through generations of Midd activists. It is intended to be a resource for orienting, re-orienting, and disorienting ourselves within this institution. This is a place where the narratives erased by Midd’s idealized self-image can live; a place to contextualize and build upon histories of resistance, organizing, and change-making. This ever-evolving guide is a small effort to ask you to join us, or join with someone else, get creative, reject the secret frat, and if you feel like you have to sell your soul, don’t sell it to the wrong people.  If you want to get in touch, please contact disorientmidd@gmail.com.
