Partnerships

Collaboration is at the core of Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies, so it is no surprise than many of our programs are achieved in partnership with other organizations in the region. From the innovative Get On Board Windham County program, piloted in partnership with Youth Services, United Way of Windham County, and Latchis Arts, to the the free Hands On Technology workshop series provided by local leaders and educators, Marlboro works with a wealth of organizations and individuals to provide valuable educational opportunities in the region. Other partners include Southeast Vermont Learning Cooperative, Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative, Women's Leadership Circles of Vermont, and the countless schools and organizations that provide practicum-based experience fro Marlboro students. In addition, Marlboro is proud to be the lead agency for Benchmarks for a Better Vermont, a collaborative initiative to strengthen performance measurement in the nonprofit sector in Vermont. The following are details on some of our other partnerships.
