This data represents 2019-2020 academic year. The number of students participating in community service is less than previous years, because credit-bearing volunteer experiences in spring 2020 were required to be virtual; it was difficult for students to find virtual opportunities. Also, this only includes hours from Karen Kato and Nada Oakley (PTK). The PTK numbers are likely higher, but there is no way of knowing distinct volunteers from various events. I took the event which had the largest single volunteer turn out. Total number of students taken from Seattle Colleges Data Dashboard, https://www.seattlecolleges.edu/administration/institutional-effectiveness/strategic-plan-scorecard/data-dashboard

In the future, these numbers should include credit-earning volunteer hours (Karen Kato), non-credit service learning hours (Patti Gorman), and Student Development Transcript hours (PTK, Nada Oakley and Student Leadership).

Consider using the the Student Development Transcript next submission: students who’ve participated in any organization, club, activity or leadership board on campus can document their engagement by filling out a Student Development Transcript. It is similar to an academic transcript, but instead of grades, documents to what extent the student has been involved on campus, and for what time period.
