MUN Volunteer Day

The Annual MUN Volunteer Day is one of the most important events for the Student Volunteer Bureau (SVB). This ceremony allows both community and campus organizations to publicly recognize the outstanding efforts of their volunteers. During the ceremony, the SVB presents awards to various members of the university community.

The Student Volunteer Bureau hosts its annual MUN Volunteer Day ceremony in the Winter semester. This ceremony aims to recognize outstanding volunteers, both within the community and within the university. At this event, we announce various awards such as the MUN Student Volunteer of the Year, the David Kirkland Student Leadership Award, the MUN Staff Volunteer of the Year, the MUN Faculty Volunteer of the Years, and the MUN Club/Society of the Year. Along with these awards, we also aim to recognize the various programs and events within Memorial that rely annually on student volunteers. We are looking forward to celebrating the 30th Annual MUN Volunteer Day awards ceremony this coming Winter! Check out the Student Volunteer Bureau’s website for more information.
