Welcoming volunteers

Creating safe and rewarding experiences

Volunteers provide an invaluable service to NSHE campuses.  Ensuring proper screening, training, and protection in case of injury is a top priority.

Volunteer guidelines

The purpose of this policy and procedure is to provide NSHE institutions with guidelines that will allow them to properly select volunteers, obtain needed information from volunteers, and ensure that volunteers have workers' compensation and general liability coverage.

All volunteers, except affiliates, are required to complete the Nevada System of Higher Education Terms of Employment. This form will need to be signed by the volunteer, guardian (if applicable), recommending authority, and appointing authority.
