Millennium Fellowship Project: Salisbury University Volunteer Center
The Salisbury University Volunteer Center is underutilized because it lacks proper infrastructure to support and connect students with volunteer opportunities. In the past, the center consisted of an unused office space within Career Services and a website that redirected students to United Way’s Get Connected. The goal of this project is to create in-house infrastructure for volunteerism to collect and promote opportunities for the entire student population. A new platform will allow students and the larger Salisbury community to submit their volunteer events for publication on the site. This will provide students with reliable access to a variety of university vetted volunteerism around the city, strengthening community relations. Students volunteer hours will be tracked and updated, allowing them to generate a full report of their volunteer history as well as providing the University access to valuable data about student involvement. Second order goals to support this project include evaluating the institutional position of the Volunteer Center and ensuring longevity through the creation of a part-time volunteer coordinator position. In addition, there will be a marketing campaign to make both the community and students aware of the revamp and encourage usage. The Volunteer Center will further SU’s civic engagement goals.
