Aside from the bounty of programs and outreach activities the university engages in, there's further proof of UVM's positive effects on the state in the numbers (as of 2012).
- Employment of over 3,871 employees (faculty and staff combined), makes the university Vermont's fourth largest employer.
- More than 30,800 (30%) of the university's 103,000 alumni live in Vermont and contribute to their communities.
- Each year, UVM commits an increasing amount of its revenue — almost $15.5 million in FY 2012 — to grants and scholarship aid for Vermonters. More than 87% of Vermont undergraduates will receive some form of financial aid, scholarships or grants from the university.
- $433.9 million in direct annual university-related spending in Vermont
- $1.0 billion in direct and indirect impact on the Vermont economy
- $373.8 million in annual salaries and benefits for over 3,700 faculty and staff employees
- $405 million invested in 42 major capital construction projects since the end of 2004
- $13.9 million annually in visitor-related expenditures in the Vermont economy
- $1.735 billion in annual earnings of over 30,800 alumni living in Vermont (approximate)
- $129 million annually in research grants and contracts, 84% of which comes from out-of-state sources
- $601 million total operating budget for FY 2011. This results in a 15:1 return on investment for the state's appropriation to the university.
