Dear Green Mountain College student,
Marlboro College feels for the Green Mountain College community during this difficult time, and we are honored to support GMC and its students through this transition. The "teach-out" agreement between our two institutions respects the values, principles, and legacy of Green Mountain College’s approach to the liberal arts and sciences. We hope to bring you into the Marlboro fold while allowing you to complete your degree in a manner that is congruent with your Green Mountain experience.
Located on the other side of the Green Mountains from GMC, Marlboro College provides independent thinkers with exceptional opportunities to benefit from a small and close-knit learning community, develop clear and effective writing skills, create a strong framework for personal and career fulfillment, and make a positive difference in the world. At our campus in Marlboro, Vermont, students engage in deep exploration of their interests—and discover new avenues for using their skills to benefit themselves and others—in an atmosphere that emphasizes critical and creative thinking, independence, social justice, sustainability, and community.
Marlboro’s pride, since 1946, has been maintaining the quality of the education we offer. We have a frugal, hardworking community, and this philosophy translates to how we handle our finances as well as our academics. Financially, Marlboro is stable. We have, thanks to our loyal alumni and donors, a $38 million endowment, roughly translating to $250,000 per student. We are excited to understand and meet future challenges in the field of higher education—especially for small liberal arts colleges in New England—and we will do so with the transparency and openness as exemplified by our Town Meetings and open trustee meetings. We’re looking forward to the coming years, and we would welcome the opportunity to work alongside you.
Fumio Sugihara, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
