Volunteers are an integral part of the UF community. Through the engagement of volunteers, UF is further able to provide support to the community and state-wide in many ways including providing community educational opportunities in the areas of agriculture and natural resources, preparing exhibits for our museums, and assisting patrons at our many performances at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

In an effort to be more sustainable with how UF tracks volunteer service, as well as provide an enterprise-wide method of identifying UF volunteers, a university-wide volunteer tracking system has been created. This tracking system replaces the Record of Volunteer Service Form that is currently required for all volunteers and kept on file with the volunteer program college or department.

Additionally, a Volunteer Policy is now in place to provide guidance on the engagement of volunteers, along with the existing Volunteer Regulation. This policy also helps to clarify who is and who is not considered a volunteer.

NOTE: All College of Medicine volunteer programs and coordinators should continue to work with College of Medicine Human Resources for their volunteer program needs.

The following resources are available to University of Florida colleges and units engaging volunteers.
