Our Commitment to Prevention, Safety, and Support

UVM is committed to maintaining a safe learning, living, and working environment. In accordance with Our Common Ground values, sexual violence and all forms of sexual and gender-based misconduct have no place here.

It’s up to each of us to participate in prevention efforts across campus and within our communities. This page provides tools and resources that can help us ensure a safe and respectful campus community. This work, and our strategies and assets, are constantly evolving. As such, new information and resources will be added here on an ongoing basis.
