Volunteer with FAST

Thursday, January 24, 2013, from 7:00pm to 11:00pm

In 2012, the Montana State University adopted a new strategic plan, with one of the goals emphasizing Engagement. The assertion is that engagement leads to student retention and has a positive impact on their overall educational experiences and successes. In early 2013, the Office for Activities and Engagement developed Faculty Administration and Staff Teamwork for Service, or FAST. FAST is the fulfillment our University's assertion that the sharing of intellectual and human assets has a powerful impact on both the Campus Community and the Bozeman and surrounding communities, and is simply the right thing to do. Join our FAST Service Program! Once per month, Faculty, Administration, and Staff from across the campus join forces to engage in service projects and make a difference in our community. With only one commitment per month, this is a great way to fit service into your busy schedule! Our goal is to report 100 hours of volunteerism by Faculty, Administration, and Staff by April 30.
