Diversity at UVM

The University of Vermont is committed to a culture of diversity and respect. UVM's Our Common Ground values statement recognizes that we are strengthened by our diverse perspectives, and that we must challenge injustice toward any member of our community. We at the LGBTQA Center strive every day toward realizing these values.
