Data was originally submitted for Mason's STARS v. 1 report on August 9, 2011. The FY11 community service data is a conservative number and not comprehensive. George Mason University (Mason) tracks its service learning programs, alternative break programs, and signature volunteer programs. Data concerning number of students and student volunteer hours within the service, volunteer, and Greek organizations are limited. Mason is working on developing a mechanism to track that data.

The information presented here is self-reported.
