Schools, Colleges, Programs and Initiatives

UVM has the institutional objective of creating an outstanding student experience that promotes personal and intellectual growth.The following are some of the many programs and resources geared toward student success and satisfaction.

ALANA Student Center:

There are a variety of programs administered through the ALANA Student Center.

Career Services:

Career Services counselors actively support students and graduates in identifying and attaining their career and life-long learning goals.

Creating Community:

Getting involved and finding a sense of belonging is key to having a successful student experience. This is why we encourage all of our students to become involved in some experience outside of the classroom. This can include the student government association, inter-residence hall council, a job, an internship, workstudy, leadership position, intramural sports, or volunteering in the local community. Here are some important resources for Creating Community.

Culture of Diversity:

At UVM, our culture of diversity and acceptance comes only from the active pursuit of it. There are many ways in which our administration, staff, faculty and students help to realize a safe and common ground at UVM.

Enhanced Learning:

The reason students are at UVM is to obtain a well-rounded education so they can go on to be talented global citizens and leaders. There are numerous staff and services on campus that support students’ learning. Here are some important resources for Enhancing Learning.

LGBTQA Center:

The LGBTQA Center at the University of Vermont is committed to assisting the University in understanding and meeting the needs of affiliates who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and/or Transgender, affiliates who are questioning their sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and affiliates who are, or would like to become, advocates to any or all of these groups.

Office of International Education:

The Office of International Education offers students, faculty and staff the full spectrum of services whether you’re heading overseas or you’re coming to UVM to work or study. Our mission is to promote international understanding, global citizenship and cultural diversity.

Student and Community Relations:

The Office of Student and Community Relations (OSCR) is committed to creating a safe and socially just environment for off-campus students and neighbors. To do this we provide resources and education to our students so that they have successful experiences transitioning to and living off campus and we work with students, neighbors, and city partners on creative initiatives to improve the quality-of-life in our shared community.

Student Health & Safety:

The health and safety of our students is UVM’s primary concern. The Dean of Students Office offers many helpful programs, services, and resources that exist to assist students in staying healthy and safe while in college.

Student Life:

At UVM, we're balanced in mind, body and spirit because UVM students seek out opportunities for work, service and play. High energy and commitment characterize every aspect of life at UVM. The Department of Student Life along with the Student Government Association keep UVM's student clubs and organizations running like well-oiled machines.

Student Support Services:

Student Support Services (SSS) is an academic program funded by the United State Department of Education. All services are aimed at increasing the academic potential of SSS participants and are provided at no cost to eligible students. The goal of SSS is to increase the retention and graduation rates of college students who demonstrate academic need and are first generation, and/or low income, and/or have a documented disability. This goal is based upon the belief that all students, regardless of age, family background, learning style, or presence of a disability, should have equal opportunity to reach their full personal, academic, and career potential.

Undergraduate Research:

The Office of Undergraduate Research, housed in the Honors College, offers an array of valuable resources for all undergraduate students promoting mentored research, scholarship, and creative works.
