Green Mountain College is a small school focused on sustainability education across the liberal arts and pre-professional curriculum. Consequently, in our 2011 STARS report, it seemed most appropriate to consider the entire school the same division. Not only is our entire school smaller than many divisions at larger schools, but faculty teach classes in multiple programs across the school. We continue that practice in this report.

The College eliminated academic departments in 2008 and increased its emphasis on interdisciplinary teaching. Given how small our academic programs are and the wide ranges of faculty responsibilities across multiple programs, we decided not to operate under the traditional department model. We created three program clusters for administrative purposes, each encompassing approximately 15 full-time faculty each and multiple academic programs. As in our 2011 STARS report, we are interpreting these clusters as most closely analogous to STARS "departments." Thus, we are listing them as departments here. One of these clusters includes our small satellite campus at Killington, the Killington School of Resort Management.

The enrollment numbers here include students under continuous enrollment.

The full-time equivalent employee numbers include employees working for the two permanent on-site contractors: Chartwells (Dining Services) and DTZ (Facilities).
