7/2/20 Q&A with President Garimella and Provost Prelock

The UVM President and Provost requested a meeting with Staff Council which occurred on July 2nd, 2020. Staff Council Representatives gathered over 10 pages of questions to submit to them ahead of time, and the meeting consisted of President Garimella and Provost Prelock going through some of these questions. Not all topics were able to be addressed in the time allotted, so another meeting is currently being scheduled. The video below is a recording of this Q&A meeting.

Staff Council was established in 1971 in order to give staff* a voice in the decision-making processes of the university. The Council listens and responds to the ideas and opinions of staff, and conveys them to the administration. It also works collaboratively with leadership, departments, and organizations to find solutions to issues and concerns that impact both staff and the larger UVM Community.

Staff Council also facilitates programs which benefit staff, including social events, local discounts, the Staff Emergency Loan Fund, the Community Service Award, the Professional Development Fund, and more. 

* Although the Staff Council serves as the voice and advocate for all staff, it does not have the same function as Collective Bargaining Units to which some members of the UVM staff belong. Those staff who belong to UE Local 267 are not permitted to participate in Staff Council at the request of their union.
