The Office of Volunteer Programs started in 1988 and is still running today. It started with events such as the United Way Kick Off, Make a Difference Day (M.A.D.D.), and National Volunteer Week. Today the office promotes community service by encouraging students to donate their time and volunteer for the local community. OVP takes students' interests into account and pairs them accordingly with opportunities where they gain invaluable experience through public engagement. Year after year, university students volunteer thousands of dedicated hours in the Champaign-Urbana community.
