Founded in 1791, UVM is the fifth oldest university in New England, and it is the first university in the country to admit women and African-Americans into its chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. The university has a 16 to 1 student / faculty ratio, and in 2009 the Sierra Club named UVM one of only six colleges to earn an "A+" on its environmental report card.
