UVU benefit eligible employees have the unique opportunity to Pay it Forward and stay on the clock for up to eight hours a year. By performing volunteer service as a representative of the University, you will build goodwill and much needed recognition for our educational purposes that can be obtained no other way. Let’s face it, there are needs all around us that can only be addressed and resolved by the hands of caring people.
In keeping with the spirit of this program, you are strongly encouraged to look for opportunities that you might not normally consider. This is not meant to diminish the value of everything UVU employees already do to contribute charitably in so many significant ways. It is meant to stretch UVU employees beyond the normal day to day kind acts that they already perform in order to maximize the potential of making a bigger difference by addressing a broader population of community needs.

Employees are encouraged to wear some kind of UVU apparel to represent UVU while performing their service.
After completing service, the applicant should provide the Day of Service Committee with a brief paragraph explaining the service performed. If possible, provide a photo of the service project.
