Additional documentation to support the submission:
---

All majors in the College of Business and Economics are required to complete 20 hours of community service prior to registering for the Administrative Policy capstone class. The total number of hours is not reflected in the quantities reported above as there is a notable prevalence of students reporting community service hours for student organizations and using those same hours to satisfy their degree requirement. However, it is likely that the actual number of hours completed and number of students engaged is higher.
