The data for this submission is based on FY18 numbers. Unfortunately, due to staffing changes, KSC simply does not have the people power it use to in order to do a thorough and exhaustive review of all community service work done on campus. We had this ability for our 2017 report, but are no longer in the position to do so. Therefore, the numbers represented her are reflective only of programs facilitated by the Student Involvement team, and not reflective of the wide range of other forms of community service that continue to happen at KSC.
