OVP Spring Programs and Events
Cans Across the Quad
In November 2008, OVP hosted the 1st annual Cans Across the Quad event. Nearly 2000 pounds of canned goods were collected from RSO’s, Greek chapters, and university departments and offices. The food was donated to the Eastern Illinois Foodbank.
This year, we plan to hold the event in the spring. Check back for more information as the Spring semester begins!
National Volunteer Week
Each year during National Volunteer Week, OVP organizes service projects to be conducted throughout the community in which student organizations will provide volunteer services. This year, services will be conducted during the week of April 18 - 24, 2010. During National Volunteer Week, OVP also recognizes students and agencies throughout the community that have done outstanding service work.

RSO Workshops and Conference
OVP hosts workshops and a conference for registered student organizations who wish to organize service projects. Past topics have included volunteering abroad, getting to know local agencies, how to plan effective one-time service projects, and how to incorporate reflection opportunities into your group’s service activities. OVP plans to hold another conference in March 2011. Check back for more details as the spring semester nears!
