Our office works to help connect students to service opportunities that they are passionate about. We like to keep track of what service our students participate in and how they are helping the NSU and local community. In order to do this, we record the service events that an individual or organization attends.
Service at NSU is defined as: "Active participation in service addressing needs of the community through face-to-face and/or hands on volunteering that addresses a specific social need."
One way we record student’s community service involvement is through SharkHub. Utilizing the SharkHub platform, students have the option to record service experiences through their individual user profiles. These service experiences can also be designated towards a student organization in which you are a member. By logging your service experiences, you have the ability to track your community service involvements during your time as an NSU and our office can see how students are committing their time to make the community around them better.
In order to submit service hours, follow the protocol below and include all the necessary information as part of your submission. Your submission will be reviewed by SLCE and approved based on our definition of service. When a submission is accepted, a comment will be provided saying it was approved by SLCE with the initials of our staff.
Tracking Community Service as an Individual:
If you are not a member of a student organization or do not wish to necessarily designate your service hours to a specific organization you can still track your hours in SharkHub.
All submissions will be reviewed and processed by the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement accordingly.
Tracking Community Service as a Member of a Registered Student Organization:
It is important to remember, that you must be an approved member of the student organization you wish to designate your hours to in order for you to submit your hours.
