Community service was greatly impacted by COVID-19 and the resulting institution shutdown in March 2020. Due to this impact, the data reported above is copied from Lehigh's 2018-2019 STARS submission to be representative of a normal year. The following notes are applicable to the copied data.

Part 1: data was not copied from PRE-5 but rather is just full time undergraduate numbers from Fall 2018 (credit indicates graduate students can be excluded).

Part 3: the institution only tracks student hours.
