Volunteers

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 the CSUSM DocUSign Volunteer Form to be received at least two weeks prior to the start of the volunteer assignment. The volunteer cannot begin their assignment until their paperwork is approved by OHR.

In accordance with the law, each volunteer is provided with a copy of the “Workers’ Compensation Notice” and their approved volunteer form via DocUSign. 

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