Upcoming Events

All events are currently on hold during the pandemic. We will update this list as soon as we are able to confirm the dates for any upcoming events.

Past Events

Open Skate Night

Each year in March, Staff Council reserves Gutterson Ice rink for an evening open skate event, free to UVM staff, faculty, students, and families. Free hot cider and a live DJ are provided, but folks must bring their own skates. The 2020 Skate Night took place on March 6th.

2019 Holiday Bazaar and Food Drive

Every December, Staff Council hosts a craft fair and food drive. Most of the vendors are those with a direct UVM affiliation as Staff, Faculty, Students, Alumni, and Retirees. Vendors offer handmade crafts, pottery, artwork, home-made baked goods, maple syrup, wreaths, honey, soap, and more. The Food Drive benefits the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf.

Holiday Hors d'Oeuvres Cooking Class

Staff Council was pleased to offer a Holiday hors d'oeuvres Cooking Class. Participants learned how to make scrumptious Baked Brie; Spanikopita; and Stuffed Mushrooms.

Golf Tournament

Each year Staff Council offers discounted fees for a group golfing tournament which includes lunch, fantastic awards, and a raffle. The past few years it's been held at West Bolton Golf Club.

Lake Monsters BBQ

Each summer, Staff Council hosts an evening at a Lake Monsters baseball game plus a yummy BBQ for a low price.

Staff Art Exhibit

In partnership with the Davis Center Art Curators, the Staff Council office helps to put on an exhibition of artwork by UVM staff, held in the Davis Center.

Vermont Corporate Cup

Staff Council provides jerseys, swag, and helps form teams for this great 5k run/walk held in Montpelier every May.
