Our founders created the iconic University Green that in many ways is still the heart of UVM. We now have a historic opportunity to reimagine UVM’s Central Campus to create a second green that better connects the many disciplines at the heart of teaching, learning and research here: the humanities, science, engineering and medicine. Move Mountains: The Campaign for The University of Vermont will raise $126 million to create seven new and renovated facilities at UVM.
Thanks to the support of alumni and friends, we have already completed fundraising for two of these projects: a $9-million interior restoration of Billings Library and the $11-million Alumni House interior restoration and pavilion construction. The campaign focuses on five more 21st-century spaces to ensure that our faculty and students can work without limits to move mountains. Join us.
The Robert E. and Holly D. Miller Building
Fundraising Goal: $30 million
The Miller Building will further enhance the UVM Medical Center’s reputation for excellence, offering a multitude of patient- and family-centered features all designed with a dual purpose: to help patients heal while moving the field of health care forward. With the construction of this new building, inpatient facilities at the UVM Medical Center will match its high level of patient care, innovative research, and forward-thinking training programs — known throughout the region and the nation as a model for 21st-century health care.
Fundraising Goal: $26 million
The university’s largest-ever construction project, the 266,000-square-foot Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Complex consists of three buildings: a replacement for the outdated Cook Physical Science Building, a new teaching and laboratory building, and a renovated Votey Hall. The $104-million STEM Complex will provide UVM with the infrastructure required to continue teaching and innovating in the STEM disciplines while creating a physical and intellectual spine linking all corners of Central Campus.
Fundraising Goal: $11 million
UVM is creating a home for alumni and friends of the university by renovating the interior of a Queen Anne Revival-style house on campus and creating an adjoining pavilion for receptions and other events. This new Alumni House will offer a variety of programs that reinforce UVM graduates’ lifelong relationship with the institution, from educational, cultural and artistic activities to social and reunion events.
Kalkin Hall Expansion and Renovation
Fundraising Goal: $11 million
The School of Business Administration will renovate and expand Kalkin Hall to accommodate more students and provide space for a range of learning experiences. This partial renovation and three-story addition, located in the plaza area adjacent to the building, will house two 35-seat classrooms, a 60-seat case method classroom, several student breakout rooms and faculty offices, graduate student spaces and an upgraded computer lab.
Taft School Renovation
Fundraising Goal: $5 million
UVM is renovating Burlington’s Elihu B. Taft School to create new studio, classroom and exhibition space for students and faculty in the Department of Art and Art History. The 24,500-square-foot building, which served as a school for many years, features spacious rooms and large windows that make Taft the ideal candidate for conversion to a visual arts space.
Named Giving Opportunities
Named giving opportunities are available within all the campaign facilities projects as well as within two new residence halls that are already under construction. Giving levels range from $25,000 to name an office or room all the way up to $13 million to name the STEM Complex.
