The first step to being a volunteer (counsellor/coach) at the University of Wittenberg is to fill out a volunteer contract form. In this way, we will be able to carry out a substantive check and allow you to serve in your role. For those who have been volunteer consultants in Wittenberg for some time, this is a new process. As a volunteer, you agree to behave at the university in a manner consistent with the values and mission of the university and are subject to the university`s standards of conduct and policies, including those on safety, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct, substance abuse and alcohol abuse, privacy, a tobacco-free campus, non-discrimination and equal opportunities. These guidelines can be included in the university`s staff manual. Where applicable, all members of the athletic department, including volunteers, must also follow the department`s guidelines and all rules of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC). As a volunteer, you do not have the right to act on behalf of the university on commercial matters, including the purchase of property, signing contracts, rentals or other agreements, recruiting or supervising staff or any other attempt to bind the university to an agreement. You do not have the power to speak publicly on behalf of the university. As a volunteer, you are free to suspend your volunteer work at any time. The university, for its part, reserves the right to terminate voluntary relationships at any time without justification and at its discretion. You do not have an employment relationship with the university and you do not receive compensation for your voluntary work, nor are you entitled to benefits, including disability or workers` compensation insurance, health insurance or unemployment insurance. They must have their own health and non-life insurance. Once you have been approved as a volunteer (counsellor/coach) and as part of the university`s COVID 19 protocols, you must complete a health questionnaire before each visit.
Parking on campus is monitored by campus police and, although the parking policy is very relaxed during the summer months, the rules are enforced during the academic year. Visitors are encouraged to go to the campus police or registration department in the recitation room to obtain a free «visitor» parking card.. . . .
