Volunteers are persons performing official university activities while under the direction and control of an ASU authorized official and are not paid. An ASU authorized official is an ASU employee who is not a student worker. Employees who are working within the course and scope of their employment do not need to complete the volunteer process.

Below is the link to the Volunteers webpage and DocuSign form (Users do not have to set up a DocuSign account, they only need to select a signature style when prompted):

Volunteer Insurance Form

  • The Volunteer will have to be provided the e-mails of the PI or Direct Supervisor and BOM(silke.krueger@asu.edu) in advance of entering in their request into DocuSign.   The  Volunteer enters that information and the form is then routed to the appropriate parties for signature. 
  • The Volunteer must understand their duties in advance.
  • All parties receive copies of the fully executed forms.
  • The Volunteer will also need to complete a waiver which is housed in the DocuSign Process.

There are three options for the Volunteer forms. 

General volunteers.
This form is used for general volunteer work.

General volunteers — minor participants under 18 years old.
Please complete this form if you are a minor that will perform general volunteer work.

Volunteers in labs.
This form is used specifically for volunteers in labs. Volunteers in research labs are required to receive lab-specific training. This form does not apply to visiting scholars or research scientists, student workers in labs or enrolled students who are taking a lab class for academic credit. Please note minors in labs are also not volunteers and must follow a different process through ASU Environmental, Health and Safety and will not be approved.
