Volunteer Organizations

A key aspect of a CME education is learning the importance of serving other people.  We hold as one of our core beliefs that serving other people is the best way to achieve your goals in life.  Our students have participated in dozens of volunteer efforts providing technical guidance, physical labor support, and emotional support.

Whatever your interest, there is an opportunity to help.  The following list is only a sample of the types of volunteer opportunities that exist near the Ole Miss campus.
