Community Engagement

The Big Event students
SCIE employs Student Coordinators, a paid student position on SMU’s campus that can help you find a volunteer opportunity that works for you! Whether you are hoping to volunteer at a specific time or within a specific social issue, our Student Coordinators can help you!
Want to set up an appointment with a Student Coordinator? E-mail SCIE
Please send all of the information about the opportunity to scie@smu.edu and our staff will get back to you if we need additional information.
Due to the volume of requests for volunteers that we get, we serve primarily as an information bank for our students. The more we know about your organization and the volunteer opportunities, the better we are able to make a “match” or direct the opportunity to an appropriate student, student group or organization. We provide information about organizations and opportunities to students, and it’s up to them to contact you directly to arrange the volunteer work. We’re unable to guarantee any volunteers, but we do our best to promote the opportunities to our students.
