Report Your Service in the Community!

Having accurate data about the work of student groups is crucial to ensuring our efforts result in the best possible experiences for students, staff, faculty, departments, and community members. This information strengthens the college's institutional reporting, grant writing, and outreach.

It also enhances individual students' efforts to track their involvement with communities -- whether they are local, regional, national or international and allows students themselves to craft a personal story of engagement that illustrates their commitment to bridging theory and practice in the service of a public good.

With this information, we can better ensure that future activities meet the high expectations of everyone involved.
