Know your responsibility under Purdue's new Volunteer policy
Effective July 1, 2012, a policy was introduced to ensure that volunteers are safely and appropriately performing services for the University. If you are considering using a volunteer, read the Volunteer policy to find the procedures you must follow.
The procedures outline the capacity in which a person can volunteer and the types of services the person can provide, including those that will require a signed agreement. The policy also identifies activities in which volunteers cannot work. You will be responsible for maintaining a record of all volunteers, including the results of the registry checks you're required to perform.
Volunteers play a vital role in helping the University. Whether you are using one to hand out pamphlets at your next event or hundreds at a county fair, this policy clarifies the relationship the University has with these individuals and protects the safety of all.
