IUB does not currently have a program in place where these numbers are recorded, however data has been collected from service learning hours, Greek organization requirements, and student organizations and causes, such as the IU Dance Marathon for Riley Children's Hospital. While these classes and organizations are a large portion of the community service that IU students do each year, it does not show the entire scope of their community service impact.
