President's Medallion

President's Medallion

The President’s Medallion is symbolic of the office and its indication of authority can be traced to the Middle Ages. 

Imprinted on the silver medallion worn by the president is the university seal. 

The motto on the seal literally means “For virtuous studies and matters.” The medallion was presented to the university by former UVM president Lattie Coor upon his departure in 1989.
