A brief description of the institution’s program to support employee volunteering:

The college’s commitment to service is inspired by its traditions and reflected in the service-oriented accomplishments of our students, faculty, and staff. Agnes Scott College recognizes the importance of building positive relationships within the community. The college and our employees are interdependent on the service agencies, organizations, educational institutions, and various resources within the community. Agnes Scott encourages and supports participation in community-service activities that contribute to the community and foster future growth and development needs. Our goal is to help existing community service organizations implement and continue programs and projects that improve the quality of life for the community at large. All regular full-time employees may volunteer and take up to a maximum of eight hours of normal-paid work time within every 12-month period to participate in an approved community-service activity. Community service activity for the purpose of this benefit must be conducted during the employee’s normal work hours.

Community Day: Agnes Scott College holds an annual Community Day event which takes place after spring commencement in late May. This event involves approximately 250 faculty members, staff, and other community members in volunteer activities throughout Decatur and nearby neighborhoods. Community Day also provides opportunities for members of the college community to build new and stronger teams, since these activities involve volunteers from a wide spectrum of college personnel.
