Don’t Just Take Our Word That Our Cannabis Certificates Make a Difference.

Recent Cannabis Science and Medicine Certificate graduate and social justice professional Monika Rivero shares why a UVM cannabis credential could make an impact on her work.


“I wanted a science-based perspective on cannabis. Because I deal with it quite often in my workplace [Vermonters for Criminal Justice Reform], I wanted a clear grounding so I could do the work without judgment. Having the UVM certificate shows that this is a legitimate topic and issue.”
