A brief description of the institution’s program to support employee volunteering:

IU HR began tracking university-sanctioned community service hours for Staff employees in January 2019, so this data does not reflect a full year. Their counterpart, IU Academic Affairs does not currently track community service hours for Faculty and Academic employees, so this data will reflect the number of community service hours for appointed Staff employees at the Bloomington campus between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019.

Additionally, in order to get the average number of community service hours contributed per employee from the 2018-2019 school year, IU HR used census tables and took the number of appointed staff employees at the Bloomington campus in Fall 2018 plus the number of appointed staff employees at the Bloomington campus in Spring 2019, and then divided.

Additionally, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a paid holiday for faculty and staff, is marketed as "A Day On, Not A Day Off," with many opportunities available to engage in community service or conversations, including the annual MLK Leadership Breakfast https://mlkcelebration.indiana.edu/index.html
