Located on the fourth floor of the Davis Center, it is currently dedicated to increasing the visibility of the work and experiences of UVM's BIPOC community and showcases exhibits created by UVM students, staff, and faculty.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has partnered with the Flynn to offer discounted tickets to the UVM Community for Brooklyn Raga Massive, coming to the main stage on Friday, April 22nd. UVM faculty, students, and staff may use the code UVMDEI on the "Buy Tickets" page to receive 20% off the ticket price of select seating for this event.
Gender-Inclusive Restrooms at UVM
Many individuals benefit from accessible, gender-inclusive restrooms including those with disabilities and others who have caregivers or attendants of a different gender; people accompanying small children; and transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming individuals who may be subject to harassment or violence when using gender-specific restrooms. Accordingly, the University supports the option of individuals to use the restroom that meets their individual needs or in which they feel safest.
