The Office is very thankful for the effort of our many passionate volunteers. Anyone can volunteer with our office,  students, members of faculty or staff, or individuals from the community. We have regularly occurring volunteer opportunities through our Green Grove, Compost Collective, Campus Garden, and Earth Month programs. We also host several one-off volunteer events throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering, visit our Givepulse page to sign up for the next opportunity!
