Foundation Leadership Council

The Foundation Leadership Council provides volunteer leadership to the Foundation and University through their philanthropy, service, skills, networking, knowledge and strategic business acumen. The council was established to provide a platform to engage the institution’s most passionate, influential, and accomplished alumni and friends. Council members are chosen as a result of their previous philanthropic involvement and interest in advancing the University of Vermont, are asked to attend at least one Foundation Leader­ship Council meeting per year, and are elected to five-year terms that are renewable without limit for ad­ditional five-year terms.
