Back to Why Volunteer?

Volunteering at a conference not only allows you to network with others but it can help attendees in reducing fees for registration.

  • Volunteers must sign in and out at the registration table or with the Volunteer Coordinator.

Volunteer Needs

Do you need volunteer hours? Have you ever wanted to learn what it’s like to host a conference here on campus? If your answer is yes to either of these questions, then the Women’s Studies Conference needs your help.

Volunteers are needed to assist with a variety of activities. Specific tasks, as well as miscellaneous duties, are offered to provide you an experience of a behind the scenes look at organizing and planning a conference of this nature. This opportunity is highly beneficial to those students in need of building their resume.

We will work with you, even if you can only provide us an hour of your day. You do not have to commit to the whole time frame and there is not a limit to the amount of time you spend with us.

Review the job descriptions below and consider becoming a volunteer with the Women's Studies Program.
