Transforming the Vermont State Colleges System

It’s time to reimagine higher education. At the Vermont State Colleges — Castleton, Northern Vermont University, Vermont Tech, and the Community College of Vermont — we are doing just that.

We must adapt to today’s world and change to meet the needs and desires of today’s students, faculty, and communities. We recognize the societal shifts that are happening, as well as the necessity for better access and affordability. That’s why, with the assistance and support of the Vermont Legislature, we have entered a bold and comprehensive Transformation Initiative Plan to launch the new Vermont State University comprised of the best of Castleton, Northern Vermont University, and Vermont Tech, to be launched fall of 2023. We will also be looking for opportunities to consolidate administrative services and supports across the new university and CCV as well.

We’ve been at work building this future since before the pandemic hit. Our five-year plan delivers a vision and strategy for a world-class education at a state university that offers liberal arts, technical, and professional studies to prepare students for today’s and tomorrow’s careers. 

All kinds of students will have traditional and more flexible ways to access higher education for lifelong learning. Our new structure will also assure system-wide financial sustainability. 

Join us for an exciting ride into the future, as Vermont leads the way!
