Southern Vermont College Mission Statement:
At Southern Vermont College, our philosophy begins with a deep belief in the potential of every individual. The College is committed to offering a career-oriented, liberal arts education to a student body from diverse academic backgrounds. Regardless of academic history, all students are expected to advance to significantly higher levels of academic performance. The College places an emphasis on serving students who have yet to fulfill their potential, ensuring accessibility to those with extra needs, financial and academic, who are serious about bettering their lives through higher education. Within its financial resources, the College provides institutional aid to support the unmet financial need of students who are motivated to achieve their academic goals and who accept responsibility for their continued, satisfactory academic progress. The small size of our College and the personalized nature of our learning environment allow students to develop critical thinking and communication skills and a sense of community and responsibility. We expect students to have a commitment to their own development. The College uses active learning to foster student growth with strong academic preparation and experiential learning. Graduates of Southern Vermont College are prepared to be lifelong learners and citizen leaders able to face the challenges presented by a complex, global society.
