The University of Vermont has fifty-one (51) departmental units on campus. As a research university, all departments are considered to have faculty who devote a percentage of their time to research, which is defined to include broad scholarship and creative endeavors in single disciplines and in multidisciplinary collaborations.
Counting only those faculty involved in the 2013 Envisioning Environment Working Group report and therefore engaged in ESH activities (research, scholarship, and service), UVM can count at least 16 departments engaged in sustainability research.
