If you would like to help out as a custodian on Wikiversity, please list yourself at Candidates for Custodianship. You are strongly advised to familiarise yourself with the maintenance page and Wikiversity policies, and to involve yourself with non-custodial maintenance tasks before you apply. There are lots of ways you can help Wikiversity without/before becoming a custodian. See Wikiversity:Catalyst for example.
