Volunteers and Other Non-Employees

Volunteers or any other non-employee status is defined as an individual who is not a current TAMHSC faculty, staff, student or visiting professor/scholar.  The title of “Volunteer” refers to those who act as an agent of the Health Science Center and performs services without financial compensation.  The title of “Other Non-Employee” refers to those as contractors, vendors, temporary agency employees, etc.


All volunteers and other non-employees who wish to apply for a Universal Identification Number (UIN) in order to gain access to various HSC facilities and computing information resources must apply through their department.   Your department liaison can assist you with the preparation of the necessary documentation for submission and assignment.
