• Empowering students, building community, and advocating for campus equity for LGBTQ+ people at UVM.

The Prism Center serves the diverse queer and trans communities at the University of Vermont.  We support and empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students, as well as students whose identities fall in between or expand beyond those categories, and work to create a campus community where people of all sexual and gender identities can thrive.

We are committed to working with all members of the UVM community to create a more socially just, equitable, and inclusive campus through education, advocacy and community building.

#HellNoToTheMemo: Read the statement from UVM Staff and Faculty joining with President Tom Sullivan and the UVM administration to affirm our collective commitment to defend the rights of transgender, intersex, and non-binary members of our community. The Gender and Sexuality Alliance at the UVM Larner College of Medicine also released a statement affirming trans rights.  PDF icon Read the LCOM statement (pdf).
