Southern Vermont College has its roots in Saint Joseph College which was established in downtown Bennington by the Sisters of Saint Joseph in 1926. In 1974, the Sisters of Saint Joseph turned the college over to an independent board of trustees and the college moved to its current location on the Everett Estate. Within a few months the name of the college was changed to Southern Vermont College and it became a private, independent college no longer having a religious affiliation.
Southern Vermont College is a career-enhanced, liberal arts college with a number of majors from within the following academic divisions:
The Division of Nursing
The Donald Everett Axinn Division of Social Sciences
New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Commission on Institutions of Higher Education
