Since 1800, when president Daniel Sanders welcomed the first class into the "temple of knowledge," the University of Vermont has pursued a progressive mission of enlightening individuals and, through them, society. Balanced against the demands of national development, cultural change, and increased emphasis on academic specialization, UVM has graduated students who are intellectually curious, consider education to be a lifelong process, and seek to translate academic abstractions into the practical needs of society. University of Vermont tells this story of the students, curriculum, and campus through a unique collection of drawings, paintings, and photographs, many of which are published here for the first time.
