Volunteer Services Standards Available Online

October 15, 2019

Departments which use volunteer services have access to the Standards for Departments Using Volunteer Services, which will provide compliance assistance and step-by-step instructions for completing the volunteer qualification checklist and the information for volunteers forms, all found on the Risk Management and Insurance webpage. The Volunteer Qualification Checklist is completed by the department online. The form collects information about the department, the volunteer, any special risks and the volunteer's qualifications. It will provide the requester with referrals to service units when necessary.

It is the requester's responsibility to follow up with service units when a referral is required. The completed checklist, and the referrals, are used to request approval by college dean/division directors. Departments retain the volunteer qualification and referrals in department files.

The Information for the volunteer form is completed by the unit and signed by the volunteer. This form tells the volunteer what their service will entail and answers standard questions regarding insurance.

4-H has separate volunteer processes; contact those units directly when applicable.

Email with questions.
