Volunteer to make a difference

Volunteers are the life blood of nonprofit organizations. They need people like you to show up, work hard, and help them reach their goals. What do you care about? Whatever it is, we can help you find a community group working for the same cause.

And receive scholarships for your efforts

We appreciate everything you do—and have done—for our community. To encourage your continuing efforts, we are proud to share a variety of scholarships that recognize your service related efforts. These awards range in amount, and include a number of other benefits that can help you grow as a person—and as a member of our community. The Augusta University Office of Financial Aid also offers a number of funding opportunities for community service.

Serve Your Community: Political Engagement

When you take the time to become knowledgeable about and active in the political process, you are serving your community—and your country.

In order to keep our nation’s democracy thriving, every one of us needs to stay informed about the issues of the day and the long-term impact of political decisions. We need to make our voices heard when we aren’t pleased with what we see happening in the political arena. We must participate in elections at every level—local, state, and federal.

Campus resources for political engagement

Augusta University is home to a number of units dedicated to political activism, leadership, and education.

Acting as the voice of all students enrolled at Augusta University, the Student Government Associate shall actively work to improve the quality of life for the Student Body, along with the university and community as a whole. Believing in the right of self-governance, all students enrolled at Augusta University shall be a member of the Student Government Association and be entitled the rights, privileges, and protections thereof.

National Model United Nations

The National Model United Nations (NMUN) program is designed to immerse Augusta University students in realistic simulations of the United Nations (UN).

Augusta University has participated regularly in the NMUN program since 2011 and has received international recognition for efforts regarding global health, regional conflict, weapons proliferation, security, environmental concerns, peacekeeping, human rights, women and children, and economic development

Thank you for your interest in working to make our community better!

We need community partners. This volunteer event attracts more than 1000 Augusta University students, faculty, staff, and their families who take on dozens of service projects to make a big difference in our local community. Let us help your organization bring your much-needed projects to life.
