More than a transfer of knowledge, to teach is to push limits — to guide students in exploring the world with their minds, their heart, and their hands. Our faculty of experts makes this possible.
With Fulbright scholars and recognized thought leaders among its ranks, our faculty has reason to be proud. But at Green Mountain College, professors are more than subject matter experts. Thanks to low student-teacher ratios, small class sizes, and a focus on interactive learning, they become your mentors, sometimes for life. They get to know you, they work and socialize with you — they even present at conferences and coauthor papers with you.
So it comes as no surprise that our school ranks in the nation’s top 10% for student-faculty interaction and high-impact educational practices. What’s more, over 70% of classes are taught by full-time faculty, not graduate students or adjuncts (the national average is 40%). This hands-on approach is the reason our graduates possess the critical-thinking skills needed to make our world more sustainable. And it’s why we’re a top school for renewable energy, ecological design, sustainable agriculture, and adventure education — fields that are incubators for the problem-solvers of tomorrow.
