Additional documentation to support the submission:

Student community service data were obtained for the 2014-15 school year. Statistics were assembled gathering data from VolunteerUA (a clearinghouse for student volunteer opportunities) as well as Athletics and Greek community contacts which also maintain statistics on levels of volunteerism among their members.

These sources are not comprehensive, but are the best direct accounting of student volunteerism that currently exist at UA. As a result, these numbers are substantially lower than our 2012 submission. However, the 2012 submission merely extrapolated from national survey data and assumed UA students volunteer at similar levels to the national average. Even though this results in a lower score for our 2016 submission, we felt it would be a good idea to rely on direct data rather than extrapolations and assumptions.
