About University of Vermont

Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward. Today, UVM is a Public Ivy and top 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 across all levels of study, from bachelor’s to M.D. programs. 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 provides students endless ways to explore the world, challenge ideas, and dig in on the most pressing issues of our time.

Another distinction is our faculty. Professors at UVM are world-class scientists and scholars driven to make new discoveries. But they also love to teach—at UVM they get to do both.

A further hallmark of UVM is its land grant heritage. Land grant universities are dedicated to education that improves the health of our societies.

Guided by that mission, you’ll find a strong sense of purpose in classes, laboratories, clubs — every aspect of life at the University of Vermont.
