FAST: Faculty, Administration, and Staff Teamwork for Service


In 2012, Montana State University adopted a new strategic plan, with one of the three main pillars emphasizing Engagement.  The Office of Activities and Engagement developed Faculty Administration and Staff Teamwork for service, or FAST.  FAST is the fulfillment of our University’s assertion that the sharing of intellectual and human assets has a powerful impact on both the Campus Community and the Bozeman and surrounding communities. Once per month, Faculty, Administration, and Staff from across the campus join forces to engage in service projects and make a difference in our community.

Pow Wow

The MSU AIC 39th Annual Powwow

To sign up to volunteer, please follow this link:

Registration Deadline to volunteer: Friday, April 4, 2014 at 5:00pm

The powwow brings in a lot of people from around Montana and the United States. We are needing volunteers to help with concessions, security, hospitality (ushers, greeters, etc.), and other small jobs at the event. Since we are going to be giving people tasks at the event, we are asking everyone to complete the safe food handler's training on the MSU website just in case they are put at the concessions stand:

Past FAST Opportunities:
January – Project Homeless Connect
February – Polar Plunge to benefit Montana Special Olympics, $1700.00 raised
