A Note from Staff Council President Karmen Swim

Another semester has started here at the University and I hope this Staffline finds each of you healthy, happy and enjoying our Vermont winter…however that looks for you!

It is certainly a busy and exciting time.  The leadership roles for myself and Bethany Wolfe, Staff Council Vice President, will be ending this summer.  An Officers’ Election will be launched in March for our successors. We are also preparing to reach out to those units and colleges where we have Staff Council Representative vacancies for the upcoming term.  So, now is a great opportunity to get involved in Staff Council! Keep your eyes open for recruitment materials or get in touch with the Staff Council Office if you have questions.  Continue reading...

Spotlight on Benefits: Hearing Aid Assessments and Discounts 

photo description Did you know that you have access to a hearing aid program benefiting current and retired UVM faculty and staff?  UVM’s  Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders and Human Resources have collaborated to provide reduced prices on hearing aids for those who need them.  This benefit is provided by the Department’s on-campus hearing clinic, the Eleanor M. Luse Center for Communication.  This Center has been on-campus for over 30 years – its purpose is to educate the next generation of professionals and also to serve the community by providing comprehensive hearing diagnostic and treatment services. For more information about this program and the hearing aid benefit, see details here.

Services are provided by University faculty and staff who are nationally certified and state licensed audiologists, experts in their field.  As a non-profit organization that is a part of UVM, all recommendations provided for treatment are unbiased and focused on listening needs, not on making a profit by selling a device.

This program is available to current and retired faculty and staff and also to family members who have the UVM BCBS insurance.  For more information about the Eleanor M. Luse Center for Communication, call (802) 656-3861 or visit the Luse Center website.
