(For continuing students and new transfer students who have sophomore, junior, or senior standing in the Fall of 2012)
Each student must complete 100 hours of community service, at least 25 hours of which must relate to a single issue area. Of the 100 hours, 60 must be completed before a student registers for classes for their final year. Any direct service with a non-profit agency workingto benefit the community is eligible to be counted toward the 100 hours. If your service is outsideof this definition or if you have questions about a potential service activity, please contact the Service Program Office to confirm eligibility.
In addition, students must complete an Extended Service Project paper or presentation (ESP) reflecting on their experiences with the 25 hours of service in a single issue area before graduation. Guidelines for the completetion of the Extended Service Project can be found on the sidebar.
