Mount Union Work Study Students
This is the first year that we entered into a partnership with the Mt. Union Work Study program, and it has been very successful. Currently we have 40 students who are participating in the Fall semester, and we have more who are interested in participating during the Spring semester.
The students work side-by-side with other volunteers and colleagues in the many service areas throughout the hospital. For some, their volunteering experience is linked to their career goals. Others are volunteering in an area that is completely "outside of the box" in relation to their field of study.
"We feel this is a win-win situation for the students and for the hospital," explains Christine Comanitz who is the student employment coordinator for Mt. Union. "Not only are the students gaining valuable experience, but the hospital is able to provide more services to patients, visitors and staff because of the number of students participating in the program."
