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 2011).
- Employment of over 3,900 employees (faculty and staff combined), makes the university Vermont's fourth largest employer.
- More than 30,000 (30%) of the university's 100,000 alumni live in Vermont and contribute to their communities.
- Each year, UVM commits an increasing amount of its revenue — almost $16.5 million in FY 2011 — to grants and scholarship aid for Vermonters. More than 85% of Vermont undergraduates will receive some form of financial aid, scholarships or grants from the university.
- $426.8 million in direct annual university-related spending in Vermont
- $1.0 billion in direct and indirect impact on the Vermont economy
- $344 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 million annually in visitor-related expenditures in the Vermont economy
- $1.7 billion in annual earnings of over 30,000 alumni living in Vermont (approximate)
- $128 million annually in research grants and contracts, 84% of which comes from out-of-state sources
- $595 million total operating budget for FY 2011. This results in a 13.7:1 return on investment for the state's appropriation to the university.
