FAST, or Faculty, Administration, and Staff teamwork in service

Monday, February 18, 2013, from 9:30am to 2:00pm
Bozeman, MT

In 2012, Montana State University adopted a new strategic plan, with one of the three main pillars emphasizing Engagement.  In early 2013, the Office of 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 15, 2013.

 Upcoming FAST Opportunity:
