The 2024 Summer Academy is offered by the Divisions of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs. This full-day event showcases aspects of the complex work these two divisions do across University of Vermont. 

This year’s theme explores perspectives on the evolving and sometimes challenging ways in politics and discourse impact students, and more broadly, our work to support students. We are honored to welcome Senator Patrick Leahy as our esteemed keynote speaker. A series of engaging panels and sessions will follow.
