Founded in 1972 by UVM presidential mandate, the campus-wide Environmental Program was established to meet the need for greater understanding of the ecological and cultural systems supporting all life on earth. Environmental studies (ENVS) students and faculty at UVM form a vibrant and creative culture. We encourage community engagement through internships and service learning and we actively support student advocacy and political awareness. We promote environmental education at all levels as well as artistic expression of environmental values. Our community is a lively hub of activity, taking up local and global issues with passion and rigor. We believe in collaborative problem-solving and the power of human imagination to create a more sustainable future. We think you will find this Program a beacon of hope amidst the very challenging environmental dilemmas that face humanity.
