    “Bennington has long been among the most forward-thinking liberal arts colleges in the United States, and I think our alumni stand as evidence that it has been extraordinarily successful. The resourcefulness a place this size demands of its students, its faculty, its administrators—it permeates everythinghas a huge impact on teaching and learning. In a world beset with complex challenges, understanding how to ask the questions that really matter and to find creative, elegant, actionable solutions is crucial. It’s an ethos that has been with Bennington since its founding and one higher education needs to be reminded of.”  Mariko Silver, President of Bennington College

    A private, coeducational liberal arts college in southwestern Vermont, Bennington College is intentionally small and yet large in the impact it has had on American higher education since 1932. Bennington’s undergraduate, degree-seeking enrollment in the fall of 2017 reached  717, the largest in the college’s history only to be surpassed by anticipated enrollment of 736 for fall 2018. 

    Bennington is seeking an exceptional Director of Admissions who will report to newly appointed Vice President for Enrollment Tony Cabasco. The successful candidate will provide leadership to the counseling and operations teams in the Office of Admissions and will implement strategic and tactical initiatives that assure goals are achieved.  The Director will work closely with the Vice President for Enrollment on admissions policy and strategy and will assist in creating a progressive student-centered admissions and recruitment program.  A proven collaborator, the Director will build relationships across campus with faculty and staff colleagues on events, programs and other admissions opportunities to enroll students who will understand the unique and important progressive educational experience at Bennington.  The successful candidate will have exceptional interpersonal skills and set as a priority building relationships with prospective students and families, high school college counselors, teachers and schools.

                           

    Background and History
    Bennington College began with the idea that America higher education needed a progressive, forward-thinking college to consider the remarkable changes that were happening culturally, socially, and technologically.  Once land was secured in southwestern Vermont and a charter established, Bennington opened as a women’s college in 1932, becoming fully coeducational in 1969.  Bennington was the first institution of higher learning to include the performing and visual arts as fully recognized programs in the liberal arts. John Dewey, influential early 20th century thinker and educational reformer, served as a trustee of the College; many of the College’s signature programs, such as the Field Work Term and the Plan process, are extensions of his educational principles. The College aims to educate students towards self-fulfillment and constructive social purposes, and believes that equity, diversity, and inclusivity--in community and in curriculum--are vital to achieving those aims.

    The Academic Program
    Bennington’s approach to learning is inquiry-based: “a process based on the belief that the deepest and most meaningful learning stems from and is driven by a student’s individual curiosity.  Students design, curate, and build their own education.”  Isabel Roche, Provost and Dean of the College.

    Students construct their own framework for learning in close collaboration with a faculty advisor and a Plan committee and guided by the Capacities they are expected to develop throughout their time at the College. This individualized plan guides course selection and learning outside the classroom to help students accomplish their goals, learn deeply and broadly, and move their skills forward. It also allows students to have agency in their learning and to creatively pull from the curriculum to support their work. Every year, all students participate in Field Work Term, a seven-week term in the winter spent off campus/out of the classroom to put into practice their intellectual curiosity through internships, work, or entrepreneurial endeavors. The open, responsive curriculum is constantly evolving with courses shifting and adapting based on the interests and suggestions of faculty and students. "Pop-up" classes provide opportunities to address emerging situations and events through short, rigorous academic courses taught by faculty with expertise in the area. The average class size is 13; the student-faculty ratio for the coming academic year is projected to be 10:1. In addition to the undergraduate degree program, Bennington offers an acclaimed low-residency MFA program in writing (the Bennington Writing Seminars) as well as a premedical post-baccalaureate program for students pursuing careers in the medical field.

     “Central to the College's founding vision was the belief that education is most powerful when students themselves define its direction. The College envisioned that students would take with them when they graduated not only what they had learned but also an understanding of how they had learned it -- developing a kind of metacognition that has become only more relevant (and I would even say necessary) today.”  Isabel Roche, Provost and Dean of the College.

     

    The Campus and Residential Life
    Occupying 440 lush, rolling acres in southern Vermont, Bennington’s campus has earned praise from Architectural Digest as one of the Top 10 Colleges with Best Architecture and appears on the list of Princeton Review’s Most Beautiful College Campuses.   Whether a shingled New England cottage or the stunning modern design of the Center for the Advancement of Public Action (CAPA), Bennington’s campus both reflects the traditional New England aesthetic as well as the forward-looking nature of the college.  Students live in houses of 30-45 people, all coeducational and all reflecting the eclectic yet cohesive architecture of the campus.  There is a strong sense of community within each of the houses and leadership comes in the form of House Chairs, a student selected among the residents of each house, and in the forum of Coffee Hour.

    There are over 40 clubs and organizations on campus ranging from beekeeping to basketball.  The Office of Student Life generates and supports a wide array of extracurricular programming, including concerts, wellness initiatives, and a variety of recreational activities -- both on and off campus.  Some of the best skiing in the Northeast is just an hour from campus.  The Meyer Recreation Barn is the campus athletic and wellness facility that houses an aerobics room, climbing wall, free weights, sauna, and showers.  The Bennington Athletic Department offers yoga and other fitness classes each term.


    Enrollment Trends at Bennington
    Students at Bennington come from 31 states and 47 countries.  The college is test-optional in its admissions practices, and offers the Dimensional Application as well as the Common Application.

    The college has seen significant, deliberate growth both in the applicant pool and in the number of enrolled students: In 2014, Bennington received 1117 applications, admitted 759 students, and enrolled 192.  For 2018, Bennington received 1472 applications, admitted 831, and will enroll 213.  The total undergraduate, degree-seeking enrollment anticipated for fall 2018 is 736, compared to 631 in 2014. 


    Accolades for Bennington College

    · Princeton Review has named Bennington #2 Best Classroom Experience, #2 Most Beautiful Campus, #3 Professors Get High Marks, #5 Best College Theater, #6 Best College Dorms, #8 Most Politically Active Students.  Forbes named Bennington #4 on the list of America’s Most Entrepreneurial Colleges, and Unigo placed Bennington among the top ten “Brainiest Colleges.”


    Bennington, Vermont
    Bennington, Vermont sits at the foot of the Green Mountains and is a culturally rich town with a population of approximately 15,500.  Ranked #3 in the United States as the “Most Arts Vibrant Small Community,” Bennington’s downtown captures the traditional look and feel of a New England village.  Home to four colleges (Bennington, Southern Vermont College, Community College of Vermont, and Northeastern Baptist College), four B&Bs, a riverwalk, a professional co-working space, farmers market and over 40 locally owned businesses, restaurants, and shops, Bennington “has preserved what most of American has sacrificed: a thriving community center with a rich history, stunning architecture, locally owned shops, and small town hospitality.”  www.vermontvacation.com

    “The whole idea of Bennington is learning by doing. That’s what attracted me to the College. I wanted that freedom.

    President Katherine Bergeron and recent advancements at Connecticut College

    During Bergeron’s tenure, Connecticut College received the largest gift in its history to support financial aid, career education, and athletics. A $10 million renovation transformed the Charles E. Shain Library into a vibrant, modern space for teaching and learning. A new strategic plan and campus master plan are now building on that strength. In 2018, Connecticut College opened the Otto and Fran Walter Commons for Global Study and Engagement and the announced the attainment of two leadership gifts amounting to $20 million – a $10 million grant from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation and a $10 million gift from Nancy Marshall Athey ’72 and Preston Athey – that will support the renovation of Palmer Auditorium into a new and revitalized center for performance and creative research. 

    Before arriving at Connecticut College, Bergeron was dean of the college at Brown University. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Wesleyan University, Bergeron earned master’s and doctoral degrees in music history from Cornell University, and is the author of numerous scholarly publications, including two prize-winning books on French music and culture. 

    She serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of Liberal Education, the flagship journal of the Association of American Colleges and Universities; the Executive Committee of the Council of Independent Colleges, the Board of the Association of American Colleges and Universities; the Commission on Institutes of Higher Education for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges; and the Board of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra.
