Organization

An educational pioneer since 1878, Champlain is a college where students and faculty don't just respond to opportunities -- they create them. We've introduced new fields of study, like Game Design and Computer & Digital Forensics, and offer majors with a specific focus, like e-Business Management, Digital Filmmaking and Public Relations. Champlain's three-dimensional education -- another pioneering concept -- integrates relevant, professionally focused studies with a rigorous Core curriculum and practical Life Skills program.
 
All this innovation thrives in our can-do culture, where people with diverse talents pool their skills in enterprising ways. Here students help each other launch new businesses, students and faculty collaborate on research and service, and the college creates partnerships with the community. Our city, Burlington, is the ultimate college town with a hip vibe, a thriving music scene and great food, from Doughboys doughnuts to Bove's family-recipe Italian. It's as original, forward-looking and down-to-earth as Champlain College, and a place it's easy to call home.
 
Mission Statement
Champlain College endeavors to be a leader in educating today's students to become skilled practitioners, effective professionals and engaged global citizens. Champlain's agile and entrepreneurial approach to higher education uniquely blends technology leadership, market savvy, innovation and fiscal responsibility with a commitment to liberal learning, community involvement and "the human touch." This distinctive approach permeates the delivery of relevant, rigorous student-centered programs in business, arts, applied technology and public service.

All Champlain graduates will have the capacity to attain leadership roles in their various fields due to their professional skills as well as their abilities to think critically and creatively and to communicate effectively.
  • Enrich Student Life: We will enrich student life for all Champlain students by providing experiences that embrace student development, personal responsibility, the application of life skills and career path development, and participation in the larger community.
  • Enhance Financial Stability: Champlain College will operate from a position of financial strength. It is only through the careful management of resources that the College will have the resources needed for continuous improvement.
  • Excite, Engage, and Empower Faculty & Staff: Engaged and empowered faculty and staff work and teach with passion, drive and innovation and move the College forward in order to achieve our vision.  Over the next ten years, we will continually work to ensure that Champlain faculty and staff recognize and honor the Champlain College culture while building a high performance environment in which  staff and faculty excel and will become a leader in our ability to recruit, retain, develop and celebrate staff and faculty crucial to our success.
  • Fostering an Inclusive & Diverse Community: Recognizing that diversity is both a reflection of our world and a source of rich education, Champlain will be diverse in ways that reflect the world in which we live and work. All members of the Champlain community will have a sense of being a valued member of the College community.
