Policy for reserving fleet vans for community service use

MHC will provide vans and sedans for student organizations involved with off-campus community service projects. Students and organizations must fill out an application form at the Community Service Volunteer Office in Eliot House. Students who forgo this process and reserve a sedan or van directly with the fleet coordinator will have any charges associated with the vehicle use directed to their organization. For more information, contact Kerry O'Brien, student coordinator of the Community Service Volunteer Program, at x6039 or, by email, at kpobrien.
