Ist International Symposium on Volunteering in Higher Education
October 18, 2019
Teresa Gamito Auditorium
University of the Algarve.
Volunteerism is something that has been gradually gaining importance in the context of Higher Education (HE), among both students and staff. Volunteering can have an impact on both individual aspects such as personal well-being and satisfaction with life, and organizational aspects such as integration and psychological engagement in HE institutions. Although this sector does not directly reflect on levels of productivity, it does have a more indirect effect. On the one hand, for students, it encourages social relationships to be formed and creates opportunities to experience situations that can be important in the transition to the employment market. On the other hand, besides providing benefits to the local community, it enhances the relationship between HE institutions and the communities in which they are embedded
We consider it to be of vital importance that Portuguese HE institutions organize themselves so as to promote a stronger culture and practice of volunteering.
This 1stInternational Symposium of Volunteering in Higher Education will take place on October 18, 2019, in the Teresa Gamito Auditorium (Gambelas Campus) of the University of the Algarve. We would like to invite you to take part in this symposium, which we hope will be an opportunity for sharing experiences among those who create and manage volunteerism both nationally and internationally.
