The STEM Complex at The University of Vermont

« Back

Driving the Future

For more than two centuries, scientific research has helped define a culture of innovation and discovery at the University of Vermont. Now, as universities make multi-million-dollar investments in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), UVM faces a crucial moment: Commit to a promising future as a public research institution or risk falling behind.

A state-of-the-art STEM facility — one that unites the distinctive interdisciplinary research and instruction already flourishing on campus — will answer this challenge. Your support for the Stem Complex through The Campaign for The University of Vermont will enable our students and faculty to move mountains for our state, nation and world by taking on and solving some of the most complex STEM-related challenges. Join us.


A Forward-Thinking STEM Complex

The STEM Complex includes more than 250,000 square feet of new construction and renovation that will transform the Central Campus, with completion expected in 2019. The first phase includes construction of the Discovery Building, a state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratory facility, while the second phase will add the Innovation Building, a classroom and office facility. Phase three includes renovations within the Votey Building. To help pay the $104-million price tag for the largest capital construction project in UVM history, we are seeking $26 million from non-debt sources.
