Volunteering is considered giving personal time and energy to address immediate COMMUNITY needs. Examples include tutoring, serving food at a shelter, building or repairing homes, neighborhood or park clean up, etc. Things such as having a table for your organization during Week of Welcome or preparing for an event hosted by your organization are considered Participation in Association. Going forward volunteer hours will not be granted for Participation in Association. If you have questions about the recent change please feel free to contact the Office of Campus Life at (812)941-2316.
