Volunteering and Participation

One common question I frequently get is "How can I volunteer or help the Uni?"

The answer is often much easier than people think. Now, there are official avenues to volunteer, such as being a hangar officer, industrial officer, mining officer, recruitment officer, diplomatic officer, forum or wiki moderator, helping the uni with print research, assuming a leadership role in the ILN, mentoring students, or teaching classes. 

However, that is only a short list of "official" volunteer positions. There are plenty of jobs that you can do for the Uni that don't require an official title.  Help people that request funds for skillbooks, hand out mods from our hangars when people need them, answer questions in Chat.E-Uni, lead some fleets or be squad commanders in fleets, run some mining ops to help new players learn to mine, group missions, and just basically be a resource to help new students.  While you may not have an official title while doing these roles, rest assured that the leadership will notice people doing this, and so will the other players.

The managers and their official officers can only do so much, and if the Uni depended entirely on our efforts, it would fail.  What makes the uni great is the shared knowledge and assistance of 1500 players, all working together to teach eve to new students.  Without all of you participating in small ways, we couldn't do what we do.

    Teamwork and volunteering aswell as the will and ability to learn and teach is what has made the Uni the great place it is today.
