Student Organization submission for President's Honor Roll

UNI has been rising in the ranks for the President's Honor Roll for Community Service and achieved national status as one of only 14 finalists this past year. This is the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.  http://www.uni.edu/newsroom/uni-named-one-of-14-finalists-to-presidential-honor-roll

Next distinction:  National Winner!  In order to achieve this honor the UNI Office of Governmental Relations is collecting data from all areas of the University and especially regarding the service activities of student groups.  In order to document our student volunteer activities, it is necessary to compile as many instances of our students’ community service activities as we can.  Community service includes both direct service to citizens (e.g. serving food to the needy) and indirect service (assisting Red Cross with a blood drive or, fundraising).

Please input information about your group’s activities with separate entries for each activity / event.  If an event or activity benefits some part of our community, it almost surely will count, please report it.  In regard to effectiveness and outcomes: If you can say that a particular number of individuals were served or provide some other quantitative measure of what took place, do so.  Example:  2 tons of trash picked up, 40 needy people fed, 500 pounds of food donated.  Other examples: 20 kindergartners were read to weekly for six weeks and UNI students learned issues around literacy in young children, or UNI students learned how community agencies respond to hunger insecurity. 

Please report each activity separately.  Each report should take no more than 20 minutes.

Please complete your report by Friday Nov 1, 2013

If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Silva sharon.silva@uni.edu.
