We value the thoughts, concerns, and ideas of all community members

Our journey toward establishing a diverse, multicultural and inclusive community has been led by committed and courageous students, faculty, staff and institutional leaders who have understood that, to be an institution of true academic excellence, UVM must consider the knowledge, skills and diverse experiences of all.

This value is reflected in our inclusive and accessible living, learning and work environments; in our business operations and organizational processes; and continued open dialogue involving the diverse thoughts, concerns, and ideas of members of our community.
