There are numerous opportunities for the student body to get involved in community service and it is difficult to get an exact count since there is no one central repository.

They reported 179 students participated in the program in the last year.

The Honors College which requires its students to engage in community service each semester.http://www.uic.edu/honors/learning/requirements.shtml The number of students participating through the Honors College is 144.
