About World Studies Center
Function: World Studies, languages
The Roderick Gander Center for World Studies is dedicated to promoting international opportunities on campus, including the World Studies Program, as well as study abroad and foreign languages. It is named in memory of former Marlboro president Rod Gander, who helped spearhead the World Studies Program. The space includes offices, classrooms, the comfortable World Studies Lounge, WDTR (Marlboro College's radio station) and the career development office.
In the past, such classical music greats as Rudolf Serkin, Pablo Casals, and Yo-Yo Ma have taught and played in this building, as part of the college music program and the summer Marlboro Music School and Festival.
