Current Community Partners

Community feedback is crucial as we work to offer both students and partners a positive and mutually-beneficial experience. If you or your organization are...

  • partnering with a service-learning course at UVM
  • hosting a student internship
  • working with students engaged in research
...we'd love to hear from you about the experience!

Please send any reflections, questions, or concerns to partners@uvm.edu.

    • The scope and scale of the intended project?
    • Student skills and ability levels?
    • Desired learning goals for the students?
  • Did you have sufficient information about these or other issues at the start of the project?
  • Were the students professional, knowledgeable and responsible?
  • Were there any logistical challenges in working with the students?
  • Did the students’ work and/or deliverables provided meet your expectations?
