The Volunteer Office was created in 1996. The mission of the Volunteer Office was to promote "service to state and society," which is part of the mission statement of the University of Oklahoma. During the summer of 2007 the Volunteer office merged with the Center for Leadership Development. Now the office is one: Leadership & Volunteerism.
Volunteerism offers tremendous rewards both to the volunteer and to those you help. By volunteering you are helping to improve yourself and making a difference in the world.
