Data on community service collected through our KnightLife student engagement and organization software. We know that this system does not yet collect all data. The numbers for students and hours are known to be very low, but this is the best reliable information we have. Honors program requires community service as well - 200 students.

The Assoc. VP for Student Life reported 5783 hours from office of student life. The Admin. Asst. in the Athletics department reported 2,174 for athletics. Honors program is 2000 hours per year on average.
