Employee volunteer programs allow companies and institutions to foster a more personal link to the community by sharing their human resources with organizations that provide valuable community services. In return, these companies and institutions benefit with more productive, satisfied, and engaged employees, and an improved perception in the community.
Under the UMSL Employee Volunteer Program, eligible UMSL staff employees can receive up to eight hours of non-accruing paid time per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) to volunteer for qualifying volunteer organizations in the Greater St. Louis area. This time may be taken in two-hour, half day or whole day increments at the discretion of the employee during regular working hours subject to pre-approval by the employee's supervisor and the volunteer organization to which the time is being donated. Hours will be reported, tracked, and approved utilizing the Time and Labor system.
