Volunteer Opportunities

Students may also get hands on experience outside of a research opportunity by volunteering in one of our laboratory or facility spaces. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Lana Korstanje at KORSTAAL@uvu.edu and provide your name, major, and the areas you are interested in volunteering in (from the list below). Your email will be forwarded to the appropriate supervisor, and they will get in touch with you. Volunteer opportunities are not always available and are dependent on a variety of factors including student schedule, required skills, and number of openings.
