Volunteers for Jacksonville

University of North Florida is committed to preparing students to make significant contributions to their community, and the faculty are themselves making these same contributions. Although this is only the second phase of this study, 265 volunteer efforts of the faculty have been identified during the target time period of the previous academic year. This includes faculty providing resources to area non-profits at no cost. For example, a Psychology faculty member serves as a consultant for the Community Health Assessment Team and the Household Health Assessment Team with the Florida Health Department. Additionally, faculty members in the school of nursing volunteer with the IM Sulzbacher Homeless Center Health Clinic, St. Vincent’s Mobile Van, City Rescue Mission, Jane Adams House, Volunteers in Medicine Clinic, and West Jacksonville Health Center as Nurse Practitioners.
