POLICY 1991-04-A: VOLUNTEERISM
See Also: Adopted: July 18, 1991
Amended: May 14, 1998
Volunteerism is encouraged throughout the State System of Higher Education.
Volunteers represent a most valued human resource whose contributions without
compensation or promise result in immeasurable benefit to our students, the State
System, and the Commonwealth. In order to provide recognition of volunteers and
their services, as well as safeguards for their usage, the following administrative
guidelines are to be used. It is understood that volunteers will not be used in a
fashion that displaces incumbent bargaining unit employees, and that when
practicable and appropriate, discussion in advance of volunteer usages may occur at
the local meet and discuss level.
