Our vision for the University of Limerick is to provide an outstanding student experience, to actively serve our communities and to contribute to the civil, social and cultural life of the Shannon Region and beyond.  The President's Volunteer Award (PVA) at the University of Limerick draws on a long-established student volunteering culture.  The primary goals of the PVA is to harness, acknowledge, support and grow the contribution that our students make to their communities both on and off-campus through their volunteering.   The PVA is a unique higher education student volunteer award.  In addition to academic achievements, the PVA is included on the UL student transcript. As such, the PVA’s robust criteria ensures that UL student volunteers commit to their chosen club, society, organisation and communities for a period of time as well as reflecting on this commitment and volunteer practice.    

The Community Liaison Office (CLO) at the University of Limerick manages the President’s Volunteer Award and the Annual PVA Ceremony.   The CLO supports and promotes strong and meaningful links with internal and external clubs, societies, organisations and communities on and off-campus.   For further information contact pva@ul.ie or check out www.studentvolunteer.ie/ul
