LEAD THE WAY
Make the most out of your UVM experience by refining your leadership skills. Serve as a club executive, lead a trip, be a student government representative, and more. Our campus is full of opportunities that can help you lead the way while working with other students in exciting, experiential, and sometimes non-traditional ways.
GET TO KNOW SERVICE TREK
TREK Offers brand-new incoming students a chance to participate in an experiential learning opportunity while making connections with future classmates on a 5-day Vermont service adventure that takes place just prior to the start of the fall semester.
ADVENTURE ON ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK
A student-run organization, ASB coordinates volunteer trips that engage in service work across the country every Spring Break. Lead the way by helping build (and rebuild) communities, expand your social network, and learn about a number of social issues facing the world today while exploring the US.
TAKE THAT 'NEXT STEP'
For over 15 years, UVM students have been learning about diversity, identity, and social justice as part of Next Step, a 3-day annual social justice retreat. Learn how you can become a better change agent against a number of socially constructed oppressions by exploring your own identities and hbuilding community with other justice-oriented peers.
