Lend a hand
Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, and can increase your level of wellbeing. Macquarie University actively supports community volunteering by providing up to 2 days volunteering leave for continuing full time and part-time staff (pro-rata) to contribute to community-based non-profit organisations, charitable groups and groups in need of assistance. Students are supported in their volunteering efforts through many programs, such as PACE, GLP, Bushcare@MQ.
