In support of the mission, the Volunteer & Service-Learning Center works with students, faculty, and staff to provide opportunities and support in the following areas:
Prior to Fall 2003, student service on campus was housed in two different offices and led by two different students. The UVUSA Service President worked as part of the Independent Branch of student government and reported to the Student Body President. The Service President worked in the V&SL and reported to the coordinator of that office. Each of these positions worked hard to involve more students in the community, but too often their efforts were duplicated.
In March 2003, these two positions were combined into what is now the position of Service President. The Service President still works with the Student Body President and the Independent Branch of UVUSA, acting as a voting member of the Student Council. The Service President works to involve as many people as possible through student government as well as through the Center’s resources. This new model works to more effectively involve students in community outreach.
