University Liability Waiver must be signed per each volunteer opportunity.
Student clubs, organizations, and groups are to complete and sign a Group Liability Waiver.
Student conduct and policy
Student volunteers are to adhere to CSU Standards for Student Conduct and follow CSU and University Policy during volunteer opportunities presented/promoted by the Catalyst Center, regardless if volunteer opportunity is on or off campus.
Student Conduct matters and issues will be directed to Student Engagement and Leadership Development staff and or Judicial Affairs.
Community Engagement promoting and advertising for volunteers does not guarantee the recruitment of volunteers.
