Opportunities must meet the following criteria:

  • The purpose of the opportunity performed is for the broader benefit of society (educational WP or civic purposes)
  • Opportunities are entirely voluntary, with no direct or indirect pressure by the University, with no promise of direct advancement and no penalty for not participating in volunteering
  • The involvement of volunteers should complement and supplement the work of paid staff, and should not be used to displace paid staff or undercut their pay and conditions of service
  • There should be no expectation of compensation (financial or other) either now or in the future for these services (except for travel, project resource and other approved out-of-pocket expenses)
