At UVM, we think big and inspire others to do the same. Our academic program combines faculty-student relationships most commonly found in a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major research institution. The university is home to 10,081 undergraduates, 1,360 graduate students, 457 medical students and 1,556 full- and part-time faculty. Located in Burlington, Vermont (America's #1 College Town -- Travel + Leisure), UVM's setting on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green mountain ranges, gives a mountaintop perspective of all that's possible -- and offers the tools you will need to get there.
