Community Service
(Minimum of 100 hours)

All students select a volunteer site where they make meaningful contributions while strengthening their connection to the community. The student, organization, and program all benefit from the time and effort that each individual spends with a site. Students are also involved in planning and participating in a number of outreach projects or events designed to contribute positively to the community at large.

(Minimum of 100 hours)
