Burlington College is a private liberal arts college located in Burlington, Vermontmarker. The goals of the college are to engage the student body in activities promoting social and community involvement on a local and international scale, while also providing traditional university level education through their degree programs.

The college is also unique as it presents the opportunity for students pursuing degrees not traditionally offered by typical universities to specifically tailor their own degree through an individualized major program.

Burlington College was founded in 1972 by Dr. J. Steward LaCasce as the Vermont Institute for Community Involvement ("VICI"). He remained its president until his retirement in 1994.

The college currently offers students study abroad options within the European Union, and in 2008 Burlington College became be one of the few universities in the United States to gain approval to offer a study abroad program in Havana, Cuba in conjunction with the University of Havana.

Burlington College is also host to the "Institute for Civic Engagement." The Institute holds discussions, debates, and lectures on issues that impact the local, state, national, and international community as a whole. A Vermont State Representative and Attorney leads the Institute.

In 2006, Burlington College announced the largest expansion and development program in the history of the college. Plans include an expansion of the Main Campus in Burlington's Old North End district, while also expanding current degree programs and offering post-graduate degree options. The first phase of Main Campus expansion will involve a four-story, building built into the hillside overlooking Lake Champlain. A portion of the facility will be below ground and will include new labs, classrooms, community space, and an art gallery.

In February 2009, Burlington College and Vermont Law School announced an articulation agreement in which Burlington College graduates would be allowed to proceed into the Juris Doctor and Joint Juris Doctor programs at Vermont Law School upon successful completion of their bachelor's degree.

The college is participating in the Green Schools Project which focuses on energy efficiency, environmentally sound principles, and sustainability.

The current President of Burlington College is Dr. Jane O'Meara-Sanders.
