Northeastern State University recognizes its responsibility to engage in and to help strengthen the communities in our region. Consequently, we encourage our employees to become involved in making place matter, lending their voluntary support to programs that enrich the quality of life for all citizens.
This policy is designed to support the objectives of making place matter through voluntary community service as an integral part of our regional outreach. The following guidelines are for Northeastern State University employees who serve as volunteers in community programs that are either of personal interest (those programs whose goals are relevant to the mission of the university but may not receive university assistance) or are university-sponsored (programs whose goals are considered of strategic importance to the university and receive university assistance). The purpose of the Northeastern State University Making Place Matter Volunteer Policy is to encourage university employees to participate in university-approved community service-related activities that occur during regularly scheduled work hours.
