 University of Vermont
Chartered in 1791, the same year that Vermont became the 14th state, the University of Vermont was established as the fifth college in New England (after Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Brown).
Although it began as a private university, UVM attained quasi-public status with the passage of the Morrill Land-Grant College Act in 1862 and the addition of the State Agricultural College.
Today, the university blends the traditions of both a private and public university, drawing 21 percent of its general fund (and about 10 percent of its current operating budget) from the state of Vermont.

 University of Vermont Considers Residential Colleges
UVM is relatively small as state universities go, and an accreditation report in 1998 suggested that “residential colleges, each with its own faculty house masters, deserve consideration because they fit well in concept with UVM’s culture” as a comparatively small campus.
We are looking ahead to creating a stronger and richer dimension in the residence halls around the idea of residential colleges, beginning as a pilot with an honors residential college in the fall of 2004 that should also create a sense of close, collegiate community among students.
I wish my neighbors to the north much success with this work—they have an opportunity to become national leaders in the public university arena if they begin the development of a complete residential college system at the University of Vermont.
