Diversity matters are woven into the Honors College curriculum. A number of the Honors College's courses address issues of diversity and pluralism. For example, in the first-year class, Honors College students study cultural conflict by reading Anne Fadiman's The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, and they move on to consider race, class, gender, sexuality and identity when they move into the spring first-year seminars, most of which will fulfill one of the University's two diversity course requirements. For more details, follow these links to the first year and sophomore class listings: First year curriculum and Sophomore Seminars. Many of our co-curricular activities and sponsorships - ranging from lectures and performances to trips and other activities - have a similar focus.
Outside the Honors College, a number of organizations at the University of Vermont help and support its diverse student body. We invite you to visit these websites.
