UVM faculty and students from several colleges provide their expertise in the enrichment and development of K-12 curricula around the state. Pre-college students may experience UVM classes for themselves by enrolling through the College of Continuing and Distance Education, while younger students benefit from UVM’s expertise through classroom materials and activities developed by faculty and graduate students.
