Center for Research on Vermont

The Center for Research on Vermont highlights research from the Vermont “laboratory” – research that provides original knowledge to the world through examining the state's social, economic, cultural, and physical environment.

Reporting & Documentary Storytelling

The center is home to the interdisciplinary Reporting & Documentary Storytelling Minor. In the minor, students study the practice and theory of telling socially and culturally engaged stories in print journalism and nonfiction writing, video, image, audio, and mixed media formats. Students in the minor also explore ideas, issues, problems, and theories related to media, journalism, and nonfiction storytelling, developing vital skills in media literacy, critical thinking, ethical awareness, creativity, and problem solving.
