Volunteer Program

Events and services are the first touch-point UMSU has with the study body, and that programming is not possible without a team of dedicated volunteers. UMSU’s Volunteer Program is a great way to make an impact in the campus community, meet new people, and supplement your education with transferable experience and skills.

The UMSU Volunteer Program provides a variety of opportunities to get involved, including the Frosh Music Festival, Holiday Hampers, UMCycle, and more!
