Northern Vermont University–Lyndon was founded in 1911 as a one-year "normal school" for teacher training. In 1944, the school began granting four-year degrees for teachers and became known as Lyndon Teachers College. In 1961, the college joined the newly created Vermont State Colleges and was renamed Lyndon State College, adding liberal arts and professional training programs to its already established education degree programs. On July 1, 2018, we will unify with Johnson State College to become Northern Vermont University, a two-campus institution of higher education.
