Tulane University values the meaningful contributions that volunteers provide to the University. In an effort to establish uniform procedures for screening and engaging volunteers, the Workforce Management Organization has incorporated the Volunteer Policy into the Staff Handbook.   This policy provides information on the eligibility to volunteer, guidelines, work restrictions, and forms that may be required to complete before a volunteer begins at the University.

Any questions may be directed to the Employee Support Services in the Workforce Management Organization.


Procedure for Departments Seeking Volunteers in Activities Which Require a Volunteer Agreement


Any Department of the University seeking to utilize a volunteer for activities which require a volunteer agreement must abide by the following procedures before allowing the volunteer to begin services for the University:

  • Have the individual sign the Volunteer Agreement and a Volunteer Background Investigation Release allowing the University to conduct a background check;
  • Forward the Agreement and Authorization to WFMO.
  • Not allow the volunteer to begin services for the University until WFMO verifies that the information provided in the Agreement and pursuant to the background check are acceptable.


Please note that the costs of performing background checks will be borne by the Department requesting the volunteer.
