Connect2Health Volunteer Opportunity for ALL Majors


Apply online!


Job Summary: Connect2Health is a University of Utah student-driven volunteer program that aims to address the social determinants of health in our communities. We are looking to recruit motivated and compassionate individuals and welcome volunteers from all majors and departments.  Our goal for Connect2Health volunteers is for them to walk away from this experience with a better understanding of the needs and resources in their community, a greater ability to interact with patients, community organizations and clinical team members, and ultimately gain insights and skills that will aid their future work with under served populations. Looking for volunteers to begin this summer semester (Summer 2020), though volunteer help is needed year round.

What We Offer: 

  • Direct patient exposure with at-risk populations
  • Networking with physicians; job-shadowing opportunities possible
  • Leadership opportunities, including clinic site leaders and chair positions
  • Community service that is meaningful and impactful
  • Reflection sessions that help our volunteers grow and network
  • C2H is an AmeriCorps-affiliated program; AmeriCorps members receive a federal education scholarship in return for volunteer commitment 


General Volunteers

  • One 3-4 hour shift weekly + bi-monthly meetings for two consecutive semesters

AmeriCorps Members:

  • 6 hours volunteering weekly + weekly meetings for 3 consecutive semesters + mobilization project

First-Generation Conference at the U

The J. Willard Marriott Library would like to invite you to participate in the second annual First-Gen Con. The conference is a FREE one-day event for first-generation students that features all first-generation presenters, including our keynote, Dr. Maria Ledesma, associate professor of Education, Leadership, & Policy. This conference is intentionally designed to be different from the standard conference model in terms of tone and level of formality; we’d like to keep it conversational, interactive, and more casual than formal.

Presenters will address a full spectrum of topics–from how to engage campus resources, services, and spaces (particularly those that are designed for first-generation students’ needs) to topics like how to overcome barriers inside the institution, how to cope with imposter syndrome, how to connect with faculty, and how to find community on a large commuter campus.

All topics related to the first-generation experience are welcome.

Time slots range from five to fifty minutes, and there are no restrictions on media format. We’re excited to see slideshows, performance and visual arts, or any form of media/style of presentation that allows presenters to share their truths.

Presenters may present individually or in groups.

First-Gen Con is scheduled for March 20, 2020 from noon to 4:00pm in the Gould Auditorium at the Marriott Library.

Lunch will be provided for free.

To submit a proposal, please email a brief description of your presentation (150 words max.) that includes your topic, media format, number of presenters, and the length of your presentation.

Rescheduled URES – Doing Library Research

Due to the snow day on Feb. 3, the Undergraduate Research Education Series event – Doing Library Research – was canceled.  It has now been re-scheduled for Friday, Feb. 28th from 11 – 12 in Sill 120. 


All are welcome.


In this session, you will learn how to navigate the Marriott Library’s online resources and how to efficiently do library research. You will be introduced to many library resources relevant to your individual field of research including field-specific journals and citation management tools. This seminar is useful for students at any point in their project and can be revisited as online resources continue to develop.

Presented by Donna Ziegenfuss.

Student Feedback: 
“Being able to research a library and online databases is incredibly important to any student or professional who is doing research. The speaker does very well in showing the variety of tools that exists in our local library alone, as well as all the online tools that one can use to find information about topics of various levels of specificity.”
“Extremely informative, I used to work in the library + I didn’t know some of the content covered in the session. its great for non-UROP students as well because its applicable to all research.”
“Even if there are parts of conducting library research that you are already aware of, its helpful to see a concise way to get to those specification options. I’ve spent a lot of time figuring things out on my own & I could have saved a lot of time & confusion if I had been to this session earlier.”
