Connect with Our Office

There are many ways we can help you connect with IUPUI students to fulfill your volunteer needs. To get started, contact us and someone from our office will contact you to set up a time to meet to discuss your volunteer needs.

Host One-Time Service Projects

Community Service and Civic Engagement staff sponsors more more than 40 campuswide service events each academic year. For each event, IUPUI volunteers spend 2–3 hours at a community partner site. Volunteers complete a variety of projects, from cleaning, painting, and sorting to interacting with your clients. Our office may be able to provide the supplies needed for the service project (e.g., cleaning supplies, paint, craft supplies, etc.) if confirmed in advance. If you have a service project that requires 5 or more volunteers and are interested in hosting IUPUI volunteers for one-time service projects, contact Charli Lienemann, Program Director, Community Service and Civic Engagement, at 317-274-7535 or charli@iupui.edu.

Market Your Volunteer Opportunities

Community Service and Civic Engagement staff sends out a weekly Volunteer Email Listserv to over 6,000 IUPUI students, faculty, and staff who have requested information about upcoming volunteer opportunities in the Indianapolis community. To publicize your volunteer opportunities through IUPUI campus email, fill out this online form.

We also refer potential volunteers to Volunteer Match and United Way of Central Indiana, so we encourage you to post on these sites as well.
