Volunteering during COVID-19
There are many ways to volunteer during COVID-19, either from home or in the community. UM has compiled a list of opportunities here. You might also consider volunteering for Healthy U, a UM initiative that helps students become health leaders on campus and gain hands-on experience in the field of health promotion and prevention.
For students in Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, there are additional opportunities within the health-care system. Please see the memo on volunteering (PDF) for more information.
If you are not exhibiting any signs of illness and are interested in participating, please contact Brenda Peterson indicating your area of interest and your contact information.
Sure, you may have stayed in touch with your classmates or reconnected on social media, but nothing beats a face-to-face catch up to share stories, favorite memories, and life events. Our annual alumni events are a great way to create new memories, meet with new people and enjoy some laughs.

Body donation program
Service after death
Through the body donation program, students gain a deeper understanding of human anatomy through first-hand experience.
At the same time, the program gives donors the opportunity to make an invaluable contribution to the advancement of health sciences. Your generous act provides a unique and lasting way to offer service after death.
In addition to the humanitarian aspects of this important decision, making advance arrangements can help relieve some of the stress your loved ones will face after your passing. When a death occurs, your next-of-kin is legally responsible for your body. Your advance plans will help your family decide what to do next during a very difficult time.
Your commitment to the University of Manitoba's students, faculty and research is encouraging the world's next generation of leaders and empowering an engine of innovation.
