Three Years of Record Breaking Service
Fresno State's commitment to impact the region was once again demonstrated through service. For the third successive year, the campus (this include students, faculty, and staff) provided over one million hours of service to the community. During the 2011-12 academic year 16,405 individuals spent 1,129,004 hours serving others. Of those 16,405 individuals, 16,258 were students - a record breaking 73.9% of the student body. In addition to these countless hours of service, it is estimated that the toal economic impact of the university's community service-learning efforts is $28.5 million.
Students attending the 2012 Fall Community Service Opportunities Fair, learn about hundreds of opportunities to serve the region with a variety of community partners while employing the skills they learn in the classroom.
At the Richter Center, we know the hundreds of different types of service provided to the community through events like Kid's Day, Make a Difference Day, Alternative Spring Break, and through classroom learning and service-based internships. But, we want you to help us celebrate by sharing how you personally helped Fresno State exceed one million hours of service for the third year in a row!
