Thank you for your interest in connecting with Ottawa University as a Volunteer.

As an Ottawa University Volunteer, your contributions are essential to the success of this organization. Volunteers perform a service for the University without promise, expectation, or receipt of compensation for services rendered. A volunteer offers service to the University and does so without pressure or coercion; and is not otherwise employed by the University to perform the same type of services as those for which the individual proposes to volunteer.

All volunteers are subject to a background screening which is completed as a part of the registration process.

Ottawa University recognizes the vital role volunteers play in accomplishing its Mission and acknowledges the service of all Volunteers. This policy characterizes the nature of Volunteer service; establishes mechanisms to promote a safe, productive, and mutually beneficial environment; specifies allowable services with appropriate authorization; and identifies tracking processes.
