Additional documentation to support the submission:

Data above is from the 2015-2016 academic year, the most recent year data are available.

IUB does not currently have a program in place where these numbers are recorded, however data has been collected from service learning hours, Greek organization requirements, and student organizations and causes, KISI, PACE, IU Dance Marathon, Hilltop Community Garden, and the Hoosier to Hoosier Sale. While these classes and organizations are a large portion of the community service that IU students do each year, it does not show the entire scope of their community service impact.
