Caring Community

At Champlain College, students become an integral part of a community of educators, artists, business people, and others both on campus and in the larger Burlington area. This community provides the essential human touch missing from many collegiate experiences.

In the classroom and online, students work one-on-one with a compassionate community of teachers who know more than just your name-they understand who you are as a person and where you want to take your life.

On campus, you'll become involved with a community of resident experts and visiting professionals. Together, you'll tackle shared concerns and industry issues at events like our "Building Partnerships for a Thriving Workforce" summit.

Venture into the city of Burlington, and you'll find business and arts communities extending invitations to book fairs, film festivals, writers conferences and symposiums such as the Burlington Business Association Summit.

As a member of these communities, you'll take part in initiatives like Sustain Champlain, which works to infuse the College campus with a proactive environmental ethos, and the Center for Service and Civic Engagement, which connects students to leadership, service and mentoring opportunities in the region.
