The UVM campus is transforming before our eyes

OUR GOAL: Raise $26 million to complete the STEM Complex project to benefit students, faculty and the larger UVM community.

THE IMPACT: Transform UVM’s main campus to better connect the many disciplines at the heart of STEM teaching, learning and research.

The UVM campus is transforming before our eyes. Fall courses are happening in the new Discovery Building, faculty and graduate students are actively engaged in groundbreaking research in its new research labs. Votey and Perkins halls opened this fall with 22,915 square feet of newly renovated lab and classroom space. The Cook Physical Science Building and Angell Hall have been demolished to make room for construction for the Innovation Building which is rapidly taking shape and will open in May 2019.

The university’s largest-ever construction project, the 266,000 square foot STEM Complex consists of three buildings: Discovery Building, a new state-of-the-art research and laboratory building to replace Cook, Innovation Building a new flexible and tech-equipped classroom and office building, and an extensively renovated Votey Hall. Once completed, the $104 million STEM Complex will provide UVM with the infrastructure required to continue teaching and innovating in the STEM disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The STEM Complex is an interdisciplinary hub for advanced research and scholarship as we address the world’s most challenging issues. It will also serve as a portal open to students from all disciplines, reflecting UVM’s broad commitment to preparing students for the country’s fastest-growing careers and industries.
