UMR University Chapters
At UMR we are immensely proud of the fact that in 2013 we successfully transitioned from being a student led humanitarian movement to being a professionally staffed organization while maintaining our strong student movement roots.
Alongside our strong belief in collaboration, what stands us apart from others is our commitment to developing our volunteers and helping them become the humanitarian leaders of tomorrow.
UMR has a national network of campus and community based chapters across the United States. These are comprised of students passionate about community service and development. Chapters serve their local communities to make them a better place to live while also supporting UMR’s international initiatives through advocacy, youth mobilization, trainings and fundraising.
Some initiatives that our chapters have lead include:
- Fundraising banquets and dinners
- Blanket drives
- Domestic violence awareness
- Movie screenings
- Panel discussions
- Charity Sports Tournaments (volleyball, soccer, basketball, bowling, and more)
- General body meetings
- Bake Sales
- Awareness Tables
- CAN-Paign, UMR’s annual canned food drive
- National Day of Service
- Cooking Competitions
