Additional documentation to support the submission:

Community service numbers were derived by asking the student contacts of each organization how many students were involved over the past year.
However, participation in the SERV auction was not counted towards the headcount, as that would include almost the entire school.
SERV auction coverage: http://www.olin.edu/the-wire/2016/serving-olin-tradition/

Some classes require a certain amount of community service, such as Sara Hendren's Critical Design/Activist Engineer Course.
SERV will also reimburse students for travel and other expenses incurred during community service.
There is also a SERV auction. During this event, students, faculty, and staff offer up items for both a silent and live auction that range from anywhere between "a crisp high five" to a nine-course meal at a Somerville restaurant. It raises around, on average, about $10,000 for a local charity. This year, it raised a little less than $9,000 for the charity Cradles to Crayons.
