Volunteering is a great way to add work like experience to your resume and get your foot in the door at a potential employer.
Students may not volunteer additional hours to any department that has hired them for pay. Students may not volunteer for another on-campus department if their volunteer duties are similar to those for which they are paid. Employers may not suggest or require that any student perform volunteer work, and may not reward or penalize any student for volunteering or not volunteering. For example, an employer may not require, suggest, or accept on-campus volunteer work from a student as a condition to participating in any school activity or as a pre-requisite to being accepted for enrollment in a class.
Students may volunteer to work on-campus if they do so of their own free will (i.e. do not feel coerced to do so), and their volunteer activities are not similar to duties they perform for pay anywhere else on-campus. Students who are enrolled in a class for which they receive academic credit may also volunteer to perform community service activities as part of a classroom project or assignment, or to receive extra credit for a class. Such volunteer work can be an important way for a student to gain practical experience to enhance their classroom learning experience.
