Our vibrant community is inclusive of our students, staff, faculty, and alumni who hold diverse identities based on age, ancestry, color, disability, gender identity or expression, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, positive HIV-related blood test results, and status as a disabled or Vietnam Era Veteran.
We value the different identities and lived experiences of our community, and are committed to providing a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment. Our efforts in this endeavor are central to the University’s mission and supported by Our Common Ground values.
With this in mind, the University of Vermont considers acts of bias, discrimination, and harassment unacceptable and antithetical to our commitment to an inclusive and respectful community.
We encourage any person who has experienced and or witnessed a bias incident to report it and seek the necessary support and/or resolution resources. Collectively, we can make strides toward creating a more inclusive community where all people are valued.
