Temporary Reassignment Opportunities

How to Volunteer for a Temporary Reassignment 

The University has an urgent need for volunteers to fill the following positions: 

  • Food Transporter: Volunteers are needed to pick up prepared meals and deliver them to students in quarantine and isolation, particularly on weekends. 
     

  • Transportation Assistant: Volunteers are needed to drive students to quarantine and isolation housing on weekday evenings and weekends. 

Please contact Mary Hunt in the Office of Government and Community Relations at mhunt@albany.edu or 518-527-3691 to volunteer.  

Employees may volunteer for these or other temporary reassignment opportunities with their supervisor’s approval

Our needs may change quickly, so we’ll be adding and revising assignment descriptions on a regular basis. Please monitor UAlbany’s volunteer needs on the Engage UAlbany platform
 

How to use Engage UAlbany 

Navigate to the Engage UAlbany homepage, login and then create a profile.  

You only need to create a profile once. If you already have one, you can simply login. 

Once you’re logged in, you’ll find listings for temporary reassignment opportunities under the category COVID-19 Temporary Work and Volunteer Assignments

Please discuss any assignments of interest with your supervisor before signing up to fill the position.
