Volunteer Activities with Outside Organizations

MBKU encourages its students and employees to participate in volunteer activities that have humanistic purposes. These activities may include health care and medical screening services to those who are otherwise unable to obtain such care. While organized local health and medical screenings are arranged through the Programs with appropriate faculty supervision, the University does not sponsor, control or otherwise supervise the activities of outside organizations sponsoring volunteer activities, including mission trips and travel to foreign countries to deliver care. Students may participate in such activities at their own discretion. However, students will not be excused from classes or assignments to participate in these activities, nor will patient care counts be given for participation, nor will work study funds be authorized.

It should be clearly understood that participation in such outside activities is up to the individual student/employee and is not a University-affiliated activity.
