NMU Volunteer Center

The NMU Volunteer Center

"Finding one's self begins with losing yourself in the service of others." - Ghandi

The NMU Volunteer Center was formed in 1992 to provide a link between the Marquette community and Northern Michigan University.  At the Volunteer Center,  NMU students and student organizations can find out about volunteer opportunities and local contact information for non-profit organizations looking for volunteers.

The Volunteer Center also hosts its own events, such as Make A Difference Day, and executes campus initiatives for community-wide projects, such as the U.P. Special Olympics Winter Games.  A volunteer e-mail update in the student connect, sent out weekly to all students, faculty and staff who are registered, highlights volunteer opportunities and upcoming events in the community. Finally, the Volunteer Center works to encourage service through recognizing volunteers’ achievements.

Please contact the Volunteer Center/Superior Edge coordinators, at 227-2466, volctr@nmu.edu, or drop in at 1205 University Center with any questions or for assistance.
