University of Vermont

Graduate students in the Rubenstein School work closely with faculty who are dedicated to applied environmental research in service of society and have very active research programs. Faculty take an integrated approach to their research projects, work with other faculty teams in the School, and collaborate nationally and internationally with other researchers. The School has nearly 40 graduate faculty members.

Graduate students interact frequently with their “hand-picked” Graduate Studies Committee to discuss the development and progress of their class work and research. Students interact with each other and the School’s administration through the Rubenstein Graduate Student Association (RGSA).
