Additional documentation to support the submission:

The Brown Center for Leadership and Service (BCLS) tracks most campus-coordinated community service efforts, but individuals or groups may also participate in service not reported to the BCLS. All social sorority and fraternity houses at UF must also meet service requirements which include a minimum of 2 service projects and 1 philanthropy project each semester.

Efforts specifically organized by the Office of Sustainability include the Tailgator recycling program for home games (http://sustainable.ufl.edu/get-involved/volunteer-opportunities/tailgator-green-team/) and Green & Clean events held each semester (http://sustainable.ufl.edu/news-events/events/2019-campus-earth-week/clean-upalooza/).
