A Professional and Personal Network

When you become a graduate student at Marlboro, you become part of a close-knit community where you know everyone’s name and vice versa. Your experience will be most strongly defined by your in-person sessions on campus in Marlboro, Vermont. Scheduled outside of work hours, these sessions give you the opportunity to connect with your peers and professors during class and team-based activities as well as during coffee breaks and other informal interactions. The relationships you develop face-to-face will not only strengthen the online component of your program but also provide you with a network of support and solidarity that will remain with you for the rest of your career.

Beyond classmates and faculty, your Marlboro community encompasses a dedicated team of student services staff, who can help with everything from registering for courses to setting up your online learning platform to navigating the student loan process. You’ll also be in the know about workshops and other events sponsored by Marlboro and Marlboro’s partner organizations, which are offered throughout the year in addition to your program’s required activities.
