The University of Vermont and State Agricultural College, more commonly known as the University of Vermont or UVM, is a public research university and, after 1862, the U.S. state of Vermont’s land-grant university.
The University of Vermont is labeled one of the original “Public Ivies,” a publicly funded university considered as providing a quality of education comparable to those of the Ivy League.
Founded in 1791, UVM is the 23rd college founded in the United States and was the fifth college established in New England after Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Brown.
The university’s 451-acre (1.83 km2) campus is located in Burlington. Features of the UVM campus include the historic University Green, the Dudley H. Davis Center – the first student center in the nation to receive U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold certification – the Fleming Museum of Art, and the Gutterson/Patrick athletic complex, home to UVM’s Division I athletic teams. The largest hospital complex in Vermont, Fletcher Allen Health Care, has its primary facility adjacent to the UVM campus and is affiliated with the UVM College of Medicine.

The University of Verona (Italian: Università degli Studi di Verona) is a university located in Verona, Italy.
It was founded in 1982 and is organized in 15 Departments. According to the newspaper “Il Sole 24 Ore”, it is ranked as the best university in Italy in 2014.
In Verona, at the beginning of the 1950s, a group of Catholic intellectuals established the “Ludovico Antonio Muratori” Free High School of Historical Science together with the magazine “Nova Historia”.
It was from this group of scholars that the idea of building a University in Verona was created. The idea took shape in February 1959 when the then Mayor, Prof. Giorgio Zanotto, placed as the order of the day during a session of the Municipal Council “the institution in Verona of a University Faculty of Economics and Commerce”.
