Establish a Policy
For the safety of your campus, it's critical to establish a volunteer policy. If you don't have a formal plan, a good place to begin is by thinking through who might be performing volunteer duties on your campus.
- What areas of the campus community utilize volunteers?
- Are these individuals staff, faculty, contract workers, or volunteers?
- What types of duties do these volunteers perform, and do they receive the necessary training?
Once you understand these issues, you can get a better handle on your volunteer situation and move towards a more complete policy.
