Staff Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are needed to help make signature events like commencement, homecoming, and the Nobel Peace Prize Forum a success. This is also a great way to meet staff from a wide range of departments across our campus. If you are volunteering during your regularly scheduled work time and would like to use your allotted community service hours, please check with your supervisor. Weekend or after-hours commitments are not eligible for community service and would be considered volunteer time.
