Leadership & volunteering

Leadership programs let you engage in meaningful hands-on learning outside of the classroom. You’ll meet others with similar values and interests, gain new skills and experience for your resume, and most importantly, give back to a cause that matters to you.

Student leadership programs

The Office of Student Life coordinates student leadership offerings including Nourish + Flourish: A space to be, explore and evolve in community. This three-part event series will offer a space for students to come together over a free dinner, experience authentic connections with one another, and discuss topics that connect us. All energies, ways of knowing, and lived experiences are welcomed.

Volunteer with UVic orientation

Get involved with UVic Orientation and help welcome new students and families to the University of Victoria.

As an orientation volunteer you’ll connect new students to the UVic community by welcoming, inspiring and supporting them. We run programs and activities to introduce new students to our culture and values. They’ll get to know campus resources and services, meet other incoming students and explore campus.
