Just over a year ago, Tom Sullivan was chosen as UVM's26th President. He calls UVM a public ivy and has vowed to improve access and affordability for Vermont students. He's also made reaching out to the rest of the state and serving as an economic engine for Vermont as two of his top priorities.

President Sullivan joins us to assess what's happened since taking over and how he plans to reach the goals he has set for the university.

Also on the program, tenyears ago, a couple of web designers in Brattleboro created a citizen news website for the town. It's called ibrattleboro and anyone can register and post anything they want on the site. Christopher Grotke, one of the co-founders discusses the growth and future of ibrattleboro.

Plus, we get a look ahead at the week in the State Legislature.
