1. Waclawczyk, Joshua A. The Role of Self-Perceived Altruism in Determining Engagement Levels of Mandatory Volunteers.

Degree: MSin Recreation and Leisure Services, Recreation Management, 2019, Texas State University – San Marcos

Volunteering has always been synonymous with something someone does on their own time. However, over time organizations have started to rely on individuals that are mandated to volunteer for one reason or another. Previous studies have explored the altruistic and egoistic motivations behind an individual’s desire to volunteer and found that overall their engagement during volunteer activities was not that different. However, no literature could be found that measures the differences in engagement of mandatory volunteers whose altruistic or egoistic motives have been removed. The current study sought to fill this void by examining the difference in engagement levels of mandatory volunteers with different self-reported altruistic scores. Correlation analysis and multivariate testing were used to determine if there was any significance present in the difference of engagement scores between those that scored high and those that scored low on a self-reported altruism survey. While results indicated no difference in engagement among these altruistic groups, a univariate analysis revealed non-white males were more likely to be engaged as mandatory volunteers than any other demographic. Advisors/Committee Members: Hodges, Janet S. (advisor), Deringer, Anthony (advisor), Kipp, Lindsay (committee member).
