Staff Council Representatives are elected annually in April/May and represent staff from all corners of the University of Vermont (UVM). We have established 24 Units which include all colleges and major divisions. Representation in these areas is determined annually by a staff census performed through Human Resource Services/OIR in accordance with our bylaws.

The 2021-2021 Rock Award was given to Jon Reisenweaver. This award acknowledges an individual who embodies the qualities of the “rock,” who exemplified strength and reliability.

The 2021-22 Yearling Award was given to Krysta Gingue. This award acknowledges the work and dedication of an individual new to Staff Council whose efforts during their first year of service have contributed greatly to our organization.
