UA Scholarships and Petition

Dear Colleagues,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable break. As we head into this last stretch of the Spring Semester, I am writing with a few upcoming opportunities.

United Academics scholarships for students working on social and economic justice

Please encourage your students to apply for one of our United Academics scholarships. Applications are due this Friday, March 22. These annual scholarships support students who are pursuing social and economic justice. Please share the attached scholarship flyer with students, and direct any questions to Vijay Kanagala.

Petition to save the liberal arts at UVM

Thanks to all who have signed the petition to reinstate lecturers, freeze introductory course caps, and preserve the liberal arts at UVM. If you have not yet signed and shared, please take 30 seconds to sign now. The petition has been signed by nearly 500 students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members. Be sure to add your name.

Stand up in support of our colleagues and programs

We will be delivering petition signatures to the administration on Tuesday, March 26. Please plan to join us at 2:30 p.m. in front of Waterman to stand in solidarity with our faculty colleagues and in support of maintaining strong liberal arts at UVM. 

All best,

Sarah Alexander

President, United Academics
