Community Service Opportunities

"Everyone can be great because anyone can serve.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Staff Senate encourages it's members along with all UNCW employees to consider volunteering to participate and log hours spent in community service efforts for the purpose of unification and representation of UNCW staff which is directly connected to our mission statement.

Periodically this website will be updated with possible opportunites for volunteering/community service. These are not the only options nor does the Staff Council recommend any one option. It is up to each employee to explore options and find the opportunity that works best for them.
