In addition to volunteer activities sponsored
by HHC's Community Service Program, you may choose to work on a
regular basis with a local service agency or to volunteer for
a series of short-term projects. We encourage you
to make an appointment with HHC's Community Service Coordinators
to learn more about eligible community service opportunities.
To document your volunteer service either to count toward the
Notation or for Recognition Certificates, you MUST complete a
Community Service Activity Sheet which is available at the Honors
Advising Office, 326 N. Jordan. This form MUST be
signed by an official of the local service agency who
has direct knowledge of your work, and returned to the HHC
Community Service Program for verification. All documentation for service
performed during a semester MUST be submitted by the last day of
final exams for that term.
NOTE: Your community service experience will not count as
formal college credit and will not appear on your IU transcript.
