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.
