Volunteer Opportunities

Commencement Volunteering

It has been a long-standing tradition for Staff Senate to organize a team of volunteers to be ushers at the UCA Commencement ceremonies in May, August, and December as a service to our UCA graduates and their friends and family.  For more information, contact Elizabeth Skinner at 450-5950 or eskinner@uca.edu.

Football Volunteering

Each year, Staff Senate is tasked with acquiring and equipping volunteers to work as gate attendants, ticket takers, and ushers for each home football game.  These volunteer positions raise money for Staff Senate to use to benefit as many UCA staff members as possible through Staff Senate sponsored programs.  For more information, contact Denicha Kemp at 852-2514 or denichak@uca.edu.

Other Giving Opportunities…

There are other ways to give to UCA staff through Staff Senate beyond volunteering for events.  During the holiday season there are opportunities to donate food and adopt angels.  UCA joins forces with KTHV through Staff Senate in the late spring for the Summer Cereal Drive to which you can donate breakfast items. You can even help a lot by giving a little all year long.  If you wish to give to any of the Staff Senate Foundation accounts you can do so by payroll deduction (Note: The amount you list comes out per pay period.) or by visiting http://uca.edu/giving (Note: Include in the comments which account(s) you wish to place your donation.).
