Community Service participation is central to the education mission at Illinois. More than 10,000 courses include community service as part of the curriculum. In addition, students have the opportunity to volunteer through the Office of Volunteer Programs and many fraternities and sororities are involved in community service efforts. Further, Illinois hosts more than 140 registered student organizations that are classified as service oriented. Acquiring data regarding number of students and hours is a challenge since these numbers are not tracked centrally; the actual number is much higher in all likelihood than what's reflected in Part 2 of this credit.
