Connection. It’s what happens when students from all over the world come to Vermont College of Fine Arts for their graduate arts degree.

As students grow as artists at VCFA, they form strong connections that last a lifetime--connections with each other, with our faculty, and with the campus. Our graduates move into the world, effecting change locally and globally through new works and new ideas.

This is a distinguished and renowned group to stay connected with; VCFA alumni include poet laureates, nationally acclaimed writers and composers, established filmmakers, and groundbreaking artists. The connection continues—stronger than ever—after graduation.

VCFA graduates can maintain this vital connection by keeping their peers and faculty apprised of their achievements and success via the VCFA Alumni News Form. Please send us your current contact information and news today.
