Suresh Garimella

Suresh Garimella is the 27th president of the University of Vermont.

A strong proponent of the value of public higher education, President Garimella leads UVM with firm emphasis on its status as the land-grant university for Vermont, the home state of Senator Justin Morrill who authored the land grant concept and served as a UVM trustee.

Drawing on his own experience as a product of public universities, Garimella recognizes the transformative power of education and research and the importance of access and service. This is reflected in Amplifying Our Impact, the strategic vision released in the first year of President Garimella’s tenure.
