Show Your Panther Pride – Volunteer for Fall Welcome!

UWM Fall Welcome and University Housing Move-In are our two largest campus-wide programs.

The success of these programs relies heavily on hundreds of academic/classified staff and faculty volunteers.

We need your help! This year there are over 1,100 volunteer shifts available. Some of these include assisting with move-in, staffing an Ask Me Tent, serving food at the Chancellor’s Welcome, and/or taking part in various signature events.

Please consider signing up for one University Housing Move-In shift and one Signature Event or Ask Me Tent.
