Many people volunteer their time and services in support of CSUSM’s mission, thus providing a valuable benefit to the university. This is done in a wide variety of ways and in many different areas across campus.  CSUSM volunteers are defined as individuals who perform assignments or services to the university without compensation, whether on an ongoing basis, a semester, academic or calendar year, or for a short-term event.

Departments and volunteers must review the CSUSM Volunteer Guidelines and Volunteer Process Checklist. OHR requires completed volunteer forms be turned in at least two weeks prior to the start of the volunteer assignment. This can be done via intercampus mail or email.

The appointing department is required by law to provide each volunteer with a copy of the “Workers’ Compensation Notice” and their approved volunteer form before the volunteer starts their assignment. 

For questions regarding the volunteer process, please contact Rebecca Keenan in HR at x4429.
