The data supplied here comes from the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The reporting period was from June 2014 to July 2015, as a result the total number of students does not match that of IC-3. This data is not collected every year and will be updated in 2018.

Texas A&M is firmly committed to community service, so much so that one of our six core values is Selfless Service. Our score for this category does not accurately reflect the investment our students make every year in community service because at this time we are unable to capture the total number of volunteers and the hours they dedicate to selfless service.

Service hours were calculated based on the Student Experience at the Research University survey (SERU).
