Academics Consortium Exchange Opportunities

Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning (CIEL)

Marlboro belongs to the CIEL Consortium, consisting of twelve institutions.  Members of CIEL share an institutional-level commitment to progressive educational practices in the Deweyian tradition. While most colleges and universities have innovative programs, often on the margins of traditional practices, CIEL schools put innovation and experimentation at the core of their mission, organization, and everyday work.

Marlboro students are eligible to apply for a one or two semester exchange to the other CIEL institutions.  Please contact Sirkka Kauffman email for information on applying for an exchange.  Current CIEL members are:
