The Career Champion Award annually recognizes one staff member and one faculty member who have gone above and beyond in encouraging the career exploration, readiness, and success of UVM students. 

These individuals are not Career Counselors, but dedicate a portion of their time to supporting the career development of students (graduate or undergraduate) by consistently empowering them to seek meaningful opportunities for work, service, and/or advanced studies with confidence, courage, and curiosity.

Nominations are open February 19 – March 26, 2021.
