Risk Management

Statement of Limitation

Once a community engagement experience, sponsorship event, or service-learning opportunity is approved, Drake University will make every effort to meet the needs of the project. Community Engagement is part of the fabric of Drake University as shown in our mission, strategic plan, and values. Over 80% of our students have a community service or service-learning experience by the time they graduate and approximately, 70% of our faculty and staff are engaged in the local community through serving on boards, actively volunteering with a community organization, or supporting different professional development associations.  However, Drake University cannot guarantee the availability of volunteers for your activity. The Drake University faculty, staff, or students must register an interest in your activity before your need can be filled. Employee participation is subject to a manager's approval and personal availability. Drake University participation in community events is dependent on availability of faculty, staff, and students and the University's Academic Calendar. Organizations interested in connecting with Drake University should fill out a community partner contact form
