The University recently decided to return to the elevated phase due to the increase in COVID cases around campus. In addition to the University’s posture change, the county has also issued a stay at home advisory due to the number of cases increasing throughout Pittsburgh. 

While we are not restricting or changing the opportunities currently listed, we are encouraging all volunteers and partners to take the safest steps forward as we enter the winter months. Please do not host or attend events if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or uncomfortable being in person.
