A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Saint Michael's is a selective Catholic college of approximately 2,000 students studying the liberal arts and sciences on a scenic 440-acre campus (141 acres contains our main campus with buildings, lawns, gardens and athletic fields) just outside of Burlington, Vermont. It is the Mission of Saint Michael’s College to contribute through higher education to the enhancement of the human person and the advancement of human culture in light of the Catholic faith. Saint Michael's College is a multicultural community which values each individual, celebrates diversity, encourages high ethical standards, instills a passion for justice and shapes a campus-wide environment of responsibility, and compassion.

Our smart, engaged and friendly students and faculty are at the heart of St. Mike's. The energy and pulse? Those come from a close-knit community, a perspective-changing exploration of the liberal arts and sciences, a legacy of service and a Vermont location that combines the best of a small city with incredible mountain views.
