Status: Lapsed | Zone: External Engagement

Passed: 15/06/2009 | Lapsed: 04/02/2014

This policy was discussed at the following meetings:

  • The United Nations definition of Volunteering
  • The work of all Union departments
  • The Oxford English dictionary definition of a volunteer
  • That volunteering very positively benefits not only the student population but also the wider community as a whole
  • That volunteering benefits a student’s personal development
  • That the work of Union departments, though volunteering, helps fight prejudices held by both groups, and endeavours to foster a wider student and community spirit
  • To define volunteering as:
    “An activity that is undertaken voluntarily, according to an individual’s own free-will, which is of benefit not only to the individual, but also to students and the community as a whole, and is not undertaken for financial reward”
  • To acknowledge and reaffirm the Unions commitment to providing for volunteering though the support of all Union departments
    Sorry, there are no Mandates for this policy
