ENVS offers advising to students to help shape their academic career. 

An advisor is an important academic guide and mentor. The better your relationship with your academic advisor, the better they can serve you in the future. 

How do I find an ENVS advisor?

If you have declared an ENVS major, an ENVS advisor will be assigned to you by the Environmental Program. Kevin Chu is the Advising Coordinator.

Not sure who your assigned advisor is? This information can be found on the main page of your MyUVM account. If you still are unsure, or have not been assigned an advisor and should have one, please contact Cathy Trivieres at 802-656-4055 or

How do I make an appointment with my advisor?

Contact your advisor directly to schedule an appointment - Faculty/Staff Directory

What if I want to change my ENVS advisor?

We want you to feel happy and comfortable with your advisor. If you would like to change your ENVS advisor please fill out a Change of Advisor form.

Can I be advised by other UVM faculty members too?

You may meet with whomever you like among the UVM faculty. We encourage you to seek advising from faculty and other advisors/mentors from elsewhere on campus.

I have a TAP advisor/RSENR first year advisor I talk to. Do I still need to see an ENVS advisor my first year?

We encourage you to seek ENVS advising in addition to your TAP/RSENR first year advising, but you do not have to see an ENVS advisor your first year. You will be assigned an ENVS advisor as your primary advisor beginning your sophomore year.
