Fellow UVMers,

The first Board of Trustees meeting for this academic year is occurring this Thursday, October 22-Saturday, October 24.  As a reminder, the number of Board meetings has changed from four to three for this year so it would be beneficial for you to attend this meeting if you are interested in listening to some of the topics that will be prevalent for us this year.  I recommend visiting the website at http://www.uvm.edu/~trustees/?Page=board_mtgs/meetings/all_mtgs.html to view the agenda and materials.  Also, feel free to contact myself with any questions about this meeting or your student trustees—Jason DePatie and Adam Roof. 

Lastly, take a look below at the General Education message.  This resource will provide a good foundation in researching what this General Education movement looks like at UVM and who is involved.  
I hope you all are staying fresh during these mid-term weeks and best of luck on your exams!

Best,
Bryce
