The Student Council is responsible for recruiting 40+ volunteers to facilitate the Community Building Activities during New Student Orientation in late August.  Greg Freeman, the SC President, recruited a good number of student volunteers; however, students have requested that we add more faculty and staff into the group of facilitators.

As a Community Building volunteer, you will co-facilitate a group of 10-20+ incoming students from a mix of programs and cultures in getting to know each other and MIIS.  Peter Shaw will train you in many creative icebreakers and team-building activities.  You will also lead the Great MIIS Campus Treasure Hunt (with prizes for the winning team).  Past facilitators have had great fun meeting new people and practicing their facilitation and cross-cultural skills.

If you are on campus during the dates listed below and you would like to volunteer, please click on the link to the Google Spreadsheet and add your information to a new row. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.  For those that will volunteer, more information will be sent to you by email the week prior to Orientation.

If you have already signed up to volunteer, but your plans have changed, please update the Google Spreadsheet accordingly.
