A brief description of the institution’s employee community service initiatives:

Princeton University employees interested in volunteer opportunities sponsored by Princeton University groups or local community organizations can sign up for the Community Volunteer Listserv. Community volunteer emails will provide descriptions of events, number of volunteers needed, amount of time required, and contact information. Employees can commit to activities of interest and these opportunities will be on their own time and require permission from their supervisor if during work hours.
There are also community events coordinated by the Office of Community and Regional Affairs including an annual clothing drive to benefit HomeFront's Suitably Dressed, Dress for Success, Isles, and Operation Fatherhood of Trenton, Mercer County organizations who collect gently used business attire for men and women. During the holiday aseason there are several outreach events including Holiday Food Drive, Operation Gratitude, A Cappella Jam, and Holiday Hoops.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Please note that Princeton University defines service broadly. The data provided above in response to the “number of students engaged in community service” is based on results from a senior survey in which students respond to Princeton's definition of service. The survey question provides a myriad of examples to assist the student in understanding that service is broad and diverse, and beyond "community service," which we believe is limiting.
