DALLAS (SMU) -- Southern Methodist University is hosting a Nonprofit Career Fair from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, in the lobby of the Hughes-Trigg Student Center, 3140 Dyer St.

The event is will bring together nonprofit agencies seeking part-time or fulltime employees; community members seeking to do volunteer work; and student interns interested in training. The public is invited.

Nonprofit organizations that would like to be represented should contact Rebecca Bergstresser, director of community involvement, at (214) 768-4403.

“The SMU Nonprofit Career Fair builds on our successful opening week activities, during which students were introduced to service opportunities in the Dallas area,” Bergstresser said. “Now they are looking for places they can volunteer with their friends, or fulfill requirements for service-learning classes.”

At least 50 nonprofit organizations are expected to participate. For more information, visit the website at http://www2.smu.edu/oci/volfair.asp.
