UPM introduced three approaches in mobilizing volunteerism, first: focusing on university nic, agriculture and multidisciplinary, secondly; based on knowledge transfer and expertise, and third; collective collective and cooperation.
As a university with agricultural nic, UPM volunteer activities also focus on the nic including agriculture-related fields. This is important because it makes UPM volunteerism unique and different from other universities.
In addition to agriculture, to highlight the importance of multidisciplinary approaches, UPM volunteering activities are also based on the integration of diverse disciplines and using research findings for transfer of knowledge and expertise to the community.
The scope and form of volunteer activities whether for organization or participation are as follows:
