A Note from Staff Council Leadership

photo description

Dear UVM Staff,

Many members of our university community are feeling a great deal of stress and uncertainty right now about events in our country and around the world. In these times, it is all the more important that we stand by and support one another, recognize when our colleagues and students are in need of help or a friend, and work together to maintain the well-being of everyone in our community. UVM is, and will continue to be, a university that values respect, integrity, innovation, openness, justice and responsibility – the tenets of Our Common Ground.

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you of the resources we have available on campus for those who may be in need. InvestEAP is available to UVM employees, and can provide counseling, resources, and referrals both over the phone and in in-person visits. The Office of International Education can answer your questions regarding how travel restrictions may impact you. The Staff Council Office can help you connect with a peer advisor if you are looking for support or need help identifying other resources that could be helpful for you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Continue reading...
