Tier2-2: Community Service on Transcripts
Office of Sustainability
Does the institution include community service achievements on student transcripts?:
A brief description of the practice:
USF provides students with a co-curricular transcript, an official document that records verifiable community service achievements. In addition, the USF Office of Community Engagement (http://usfweb3.usf.edu/Engagement) actively promotes service-learning programs and courses (http://usfweb3.usf.edu/Engagement/Resources/service-learning.aspx) by offering grants to instructors for course development. Courses that are developed with a sustainability theme also receive financial support from the Office of Sustainability (http://usfweb2.usf.edu/Sustainability/about/programs.html). The Office of Community Engagement is currently working with the USF Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (http://usfweb2.usf.edu/Sustainability/about/programs.html) on ways to acknowledge service-learning in other venues, including faculty tenure and promotion.
