In partnership with VCU's offices of Safety and Risk Management (SRM), Employee Health, and Equity and Access Services, the following guidance and resources are provided to help units manage and work with university volunteers. 

This guidance does not extend to current VCU student volunteers.

Prior to assisting with onboarding volunteers, HR staff in departments and units are responsible for reviewing the Employee and Affiliate Identification Policy. Managers/individuals requesting volunteers must review the Safety and Protection of Minors on Campus (SPM) Policy to ensure compliance.

Volunteers agree to abide by the VCU Code of Conduct and all relevant VCU policies and related laws.
