The Student Experience:
This Community of Practice allows students to choose the ways in which they engage with Vermont researchers. While all students will focus on Vermont topics, some may get involved working with specific Vermont towns, while others may work on more overarching projects:
Building civic infrastructure for more informed, engaged, and equitable Vermont communities.
The VLCT-UVM Local Democracy Internship Program brings together UVM students and Vermont town municipal offices to explore and support local democratic processes in our State. The program is part of a statewide initiative to rebuild civic trust and engagement by providing greater government accountability, transparency, and a reliable ecosystem of local information.
Digital Media Production
Develop digital media including podcasts, websites, electronic newsletters, videos and interactives, i.e. computer assisted graphs and charts – all to tell strong multi-media stories about the state of Vermont. This program is closely linked to the Center for Research on Vermont, the state's center for multidisciplinary study of our State.
