Just in case you missed this from the People Center Update last week: Champlain wishes for all of our employees to stay healthy! Employees are eligible to participate whether or not they carry health insurance through Champlain. We will be following specific protocols and each date will be limited to 50 individual appointments per date: See the schedule & sign-up here.

You may also visit your primary care provider or participating pharmacy. CIGNA members view this list of in-network pharmacies.

You will be required to only come to campus for the specified flu shot appointment slot only and not visit any other area on campus. You will need to complete the Employee Daily Health Screening Form on the day of your visit. A COVID-19 test is not required when coming to campus for a flu shot only.


On Thursday, October 15th the State of Vermont updated their Mandatory Guidance for College and University Campus Learning. The updates are reflected in red text and include changes to the quarantine requirements, academic calendar, athletics, and transportation.


As a reminder, Koya Leadership Partners, a subsidiary of Diversified Search and the firm supporting our Provost search is hosting listening sessions with faculty, staff, and students. The purpose of these sessions is to discuss the ideal candidate profile for our next Provost. The upcoming sessions are:
