The NMU Volunteer Center
"Finding one's self begins with losing yourself in the service of others." ~Gandhi
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 , student organizations, faculty, and staff 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. A volunteer e-mail update in Student Connect is sent out twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) to all students, faculty and staff and highlights volunteer opportunities and upcoming events in the community. Finally, the Volunteer Center works to encourage service through recognizing volunteers’ achievements.
Welcome to the Volunteer Center!
