All financial and administrative policies involving community members across campus, including volunteers are within the scope of this policy. If there is a variance between departmental expectations and the common approach described through college policy, the college will look to the campus community, including volunteers to support the spirit and the objectives of college policy. Unless specifically mentioned in a college policy, the college’s Board of Trustees are governed by their Bylaws.


Full- and part-time staff may be granted up to four days of paid time per calendar year to voluntarily participate in a college sponsored community service event that occurs during their regularly scheduled work hours. The college will not provide reimbursement for travel, lodging, meals, and other trip-related expenses. Participation in such events may not result in the accumulation of overtime for staff in hourly positions.

Accidents that occur during college sponsored community service may be covered by the college’s workers compensation insurance carrier.


Staff wishing to participate must submit a written request to their supervisors prior to the event. Supervisors may deny leave requests due to departmental workload, or for other business needs.
