At Bennington College, learning happens everywhere and all the time in ways that are sometimes curated, often self-directed, deeply collaborative and interdependent. The conscious creation of community is the shared enterprise of everyone in our community and premised on the development of the whole student. The out-of-the-classroom experience engages students as architects in their own growth through transformative experiences emerging from academic and creative spaces, into the living learning experiment of the residential experience.

Student Life, Office of Student Engagement, Field Work Term and Career Development, Academic Services, Campus Safety and Student Health Center all work together, and in collaboration with faculty, to create an environment that promotes intellectual rigor, emotional and social grounding, and physical health and recreation. By joining Bennington College, you enter into this shared agreement and we are the better for it. As you find ways to share your unique self, as well as the voices of those who helped to bring you here, we look forward to your contribution.
