Hot/Mix Workshops

Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies has a storehouse of knowledge and practical experience, and HOT/MIX is a repeating series of free, short workshops designed to share some of these insights with local and regional professionals. It’s Marlboro’s way of saying “thanks” to the local community.

MIX (Management Ideas Exchange) is a free, lunchtime workshop series sponsored by the nonprofit, business and healthcare managements program at the Center for Graduate and Professional Studies. Directors and staff of mission-driven organizations are invited to join us for network opportunities, best practices in organizational success, and the exchange of ideas. With topics ranging from “Managing Organizational Change” to “Calming the Storm: De-escalating High-Heat Encounters,” these workshops build on the experience of participants to reach new horizons in professional efficacy. Each session will be presented by an instructor from one of the Marlboro graduate degrees in management, or by a local nonprofit, government, or business leader.

HOT (Hands On Technology) is a free, evening workshop series provided by the educational technology program at the Center for Graduate and Professional Studies. These workshops are helpful for anyone who is interested in using technology more effectively, in their workplace or in their home. From “Simple Tricks for Stunning Presentation Slides,” to “Search Engine Optimization,” to “Google Docs,” these hands-on workshops will provide skills that you can apply right away. Participants are expected to bring their own laptops.

Both HOT and MIX workshops are free, but please register in advance on eventbrite. Check our Events (link) for upcoming workshops. For more information, contact Ariel Brooks at
