Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteering around UMB and locally benefits the greater Baltimore community.

Via the Office of Community Engagement

Mission: To leverage UMB’s economic resources and human capital to engage with the community through direct service and systemic change to improve quality of life in West Baltimore and beyond.

UMB Volunteer Initiative

UMB will allow full-time faculty and staff to use four hours of paid leave if they wish to volunteer at a qualifying nonprofit organization of their choice during each calendar year. All regular full-time state faculty and staff employees are eligible to participate. In support of this initiative, UMB’s Office of Community Engagement has developed a website capturing potential volunteer opportunities with existing community partners to help employees in identifying appropriate volunteer opportunities close to campus. While faculty and staff are encouraged to volunteer individually, we also encourage staff to volunteer as a group/department for one of the opportunities listed here.

Via Intercultural Leadership and Engagement

Intercultural Leadership and Engagement (ILE) aims to provide academic and social support to historically underrepresented populations while enhancing skills for intercultural development and intergroup dialogue.

President’s Student Leadership Institute (PSLI) is an interprofessional program that creates opportunities for leaders in health, policy, and human services who are increasingly compelled to partner with communities to effect positive change. Changes in health funding and shifting expectations of corporate citizenship demand emerging leaders to integrate social justice and cultural sensitivity with technical savvy. In this track, student leaders will learn from, and with, community leaders about power, race, and positive change.
