Our Sincere Commitment to Prevention, Safety, and Support

    In recent months, many students and others in our community have asked that we examine UVM’s practices in handling reported sexual misconduct cases and in supporting survivors, and that we expand prevention efforts.

    We want you to know we hear you. We’ve taken many concrete steps toward addressing these requests, and we recently welcomed Elliot Ruggles to UVM as the university’s first Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Coordinator.

    This website will keep you updated on our efforts and our ongoing work as a community to address this critical issue.
