Staff Council Transitions and Job Opening
Search underway for the next Staff Council Administrator
- By Renee Berteau
After more than seven years of service as the Administrator for Staff Council our very own Jeff Bukowski will be leaving the University of Vermont at the end of October. While we are sad to see Jeff leave, we are proud and excited for him in his new adventure as the Assistant Dean, School of Arts, Science, and Business at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA where he will also hold a faculty rank as Assistant Professor of Policy Studies. We want to thank Jeff for his efforts to advance Staff Council here at UVM and his service as an advocate for staff needs and concerns. We wish him well in this and all other future endeavors.
