dc.description.abstract This qualitative study aims to identify the motivations and constraints that undergraduate students experience in volunteering in different student-run organizations. The study applies models of volunteer function inventory and leisure constraints to the Egyptian context with focus on one private not-for-profit institution. The study highlighted the pivotal role of educational institutions in encouraging and implementing campus-based volunteering activities among students. The study identifies three groups of motivational factors to student volunteerism in this context: social motivation; personal enhancement; and career motivations. The study also identifies three constraints to student volunteerism. These refer to structural constraints; intrapersonal constraints; and interpersonal constraints. The study concludes with policy recommendations to increase and encourage student campus-based volunteerism in Egypt involving the Ministry of Higher Education, university administrations, and civil society organizations. en_US
