Marlboro College invites alumni, prospective students, parents, educators and the interested public to the first Marlboro College on the Road event, in New York City. Feel free to share this invitation with others.
Living its mission of providing independent thinkers opportunities to broaden their intellectual horizons, Marlboro College is taking members of the faculy on the road to new locations as a way to engage, reconnect, and share knowledge. And we are doing it the way we know best: by utilizing our faculty in small group settings, exploring together topics relevant to our world and our future.
