University of Vermont

The University of Vermont's hilltop campus looks out across one of America's most vibrant small cities to Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains beyond. Here, students' educational experience and activities are enriched by our location -- from the energy and innovation of Burlington to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of Vermont. UVM is a research university of a perfect size, large enough to offer a breadth of ideas, resources, and opportunities, yet small enough to enable close faculty-student mentorship. With a commitment to undergraduate education, UVM professors -- world-class researchers, scholars, and artists -- bring their discoveries into the classroom and their students into the field. You'll find UVM students across all levels of education studying the effects of climate change aboard the Melosira, a research vessel and floating lab; testing new vaccines at the on-campus medical center; launching local start-ups; and working with refugees at Burlington community centers.The fifth oldest university in New England, UVM boasts a legacy of important firsts in education: the first college to declare public support of freedom of religion and the first to admit women and African-Americans to Phi Beta Kappa. Today, the university continues to provide students endless ways to explore the world, challenge ideas, and dig in on the most pressing issues of our time.
