Volunteer work provides the opportunity to grow while supporting others. The Barnes Center at The Arch offers a number of ways for members of the campus community to volunteer.

Student Health Advisory Committee

The Student Health Advisory Committee is a group of students across campus that provide guidance and feedback on Barnes Center at The Arch health initiatives, programs and services. This group is composed of students that have been nominated by staff, faculty and other students in representation of their school or college. The students are asked to volunteer for four to five hours per month, including a monthly 90-minute meeting and monthly projects between meeting times.

Nominations for the 2021-2022 academic year are now open. The committee seeks a diverse group of students across the campus community, that can provide honest feedback and have the time to fully commit to this volunteer opportunity. If you have a student or students you would like to nominate please fill out the form below.

Nominations Due: Monday, Aug. 2, 2021
