We are excited to be launching the new University Project Management Office!

We help to continuously improve the University of Vermont by managing a limited selection of high-priority, high-impact University Projects with multiple stakeholders across the university.

University Projects are selected to help enable student, faculty, and staff success by ensuring that UVM has modern, shared systems and resources available to them.

  • Improve student success and experience

  • Advance our land-grant mission

Type of Projects:

  • Business Improvement
