The University of Vermont, Department of Biology

Established in 1791, the University of Vermont is considered a public-ivy 
and consistently ranked as one of the top public universities in the United 
States. Our academic programs combine faculty-student relationships 
most commonly found in a small liberal arts college with the resources of 
a land-grant research institution. UVM’s tradition of equity and social 
justice extends not only to faculty, staff, and students, but also is 
reflected in a commitment to environmentally sound and sustainable
