MSUM students gave back to their communities in a big way this semester by becoming volunteers with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, where they helped low-to-moderate income families who needed assistance preparing their 2015 tax returns.

As committed VITA volunteers, our students first received training and passed certification tests, then began providing free tax help at officially-designated VITA sites. We are very excited to report that in addition to time spent on training and certification, 32 currently enrolled MSUM students volunteered a grand total of 673 hours at VITA sites this semester. What a great way to serve their communities, while at the same time getting relevant, real-world experience on their resumes!
