UIS students respond to volunteer fair

Representatives of two dozen non-profit groups and organizations set up on the concourse of the Public Affairs center as part of UIS’ first-ever “Fall into Volunteering Fair.”

“It was an idea developed by students who wanted a volunteer fair,” said Kelly Thompson, director of the UIS Volunteer & Civic Engagement Center. The center and UIS Housing got together to sponsor the fair.

The fair was featured in a September 23, 2009 article in the State Journal-Register.
