Vermont lawmakers have elected three of their own to seats on the University of Vermont Board of Trustees, excluding the only non-legislator candidate.

Democratic Representatives Sarah Buxton of Tunbridge, Jeff Wilson of Manchester and Anne O'Brien of Richmond will fill what were three open seats on the UVM Board of Trustees.

When students at the University of Vermont resume classes on the snow-covered Burlington campus Monday, something will be missing: bottled water. UVM is the latest university to ban on-campus sales of bottled water.

At one of UVM's recently retrofitted refill stations, students fill up their reusable bottles with tap water. For many of the 14,000 students and staff on this campus, topping off their refillable bottles is an old habit.

The University of Vermont will  implement a ban the sale of bottled water on its campus at the beginning of the year.  Students and officials celebrated the change at a campus event Wednesday afternoon.

The former interim president of the University of Vermont is going to lead an effort to help the state get more from its investment in the state's flagship university.

The appointment of John Bramley was announced Wednesday by Governor Peter Shumlin and UVM President Tom Sullivan.

Bramley will head a panel tasked with implementing some of the ideas contained in a report issued in June called "New Ideas for Changing Times."

Office workers at the University of Vermont have voted against union representation.

They voted 443-189 Wednesday against joining the union, defeating an effort by University Staff Union-NEA to represent clerical, administrative, technical and specialist employees.

The balloting followed a September election in which the employees voted in favor of union representation, but failed to give a majority to either of two competing unions. University Staff Union-NEA received more votes than rival United Staff, so it advanced to the election.
