Did you know that community service leave is one of your many benefits as a VCU employee? 

A special VCU Employee-only oyster shell bagging event is coming up. This is one way VCU employees can use their community service leave. You can find more information at the VCU Employee Oyster Shell Bagging link

Eligible faculty and staff (with or without children) are provided with paid community service leave (up to 16 hours) each calendar year to meet with public or private school officials about their children, to attend school functions in which their children are participating, to perform school-approved volunteer work in a public school or to participate in volunteer community service organizations.
