The Plaque Project is an initiative driven by the Alumni Ambassadors, who are the senior leader volunteers in the Alumni and Development Office. The project aims to create an informal history about the subject matter of various plaques carved by Middlesex alumni. The Alumni Ambassadors have been in contact with various alumni, from members of reunion classes, to members of the Alumni Association. Plaques are a time honored tradition at Middlesex and it is a requirement for each graduating senior to carve a plaque before he or she graduates. The project, which started in 2011, has created an archive of plaque stories spanning all decades of Middlesex alumni.
