Creating Vermont State
With the creation of Vermont State University, we have the opportunity to build on the strong legacy of Castleton University, Vermont Technical College, and Northern Vermont University to envision a university designed to meet the rapidly evolving needs of Vermont, Vermonters, and the communities our institutions serve. The mission and vision of this new institution are unique in the way they describe our commitments, but they are designed to align with both the Vermont Sate Colleges System mission and that of its sister institution, the Community College of Vermont.
Vermont State University prepares all students for meaningful work and responsible citizenship by fostering their intellectual, personal, and creative growth in an accessible, caring, and inclusive community. As Vermont’s regional public university, our technological, professional, and liberal arts programs engage with partners throughout Vermont and beyond to provide students with rich real-world learning while meeting the needs of our communities and the state.
