The University of Vermont has been recognized as a public ivy and one of the nation's premier small research universities. Our size and dual teaching and research mission give students unique academic opportunities that aren't available at small schools and aren't accessible to undergraduates at large institutions. A hands-on learning approach is fundamental to our culture and courses are designed to make academic material come alive.
