Who can participate in the 1864 Service Challenge?
University of Denver students, alumni, faculty and staff members are welcome to participate in the challenge.
What do I need to do to participate?
It’s easy! When you do volunteer service work in a community, just go online to http://sqc.wpengine.com/challenge and log your hours. Our goal is for the DU community to reach 186,400 hours of service in 2014, our 150th year.
Can I enter hours for more than one person (if doing service in the community as a team)?
Yes, but make sure you first set up a team account (using a different screen name for the team vs. your individual screen name). Then select “team” from the drop-down menu. When you enter the total hours served, make sure you add up the hours from each team member so the total team effort is reported.
Why is this important?
Whether you serve in your community or throughout the world, whether you’ve served for years or are new to community service, every DU community member makes a difference. The vision of the University is to be a great private University dedicated to the public good, and during our sesquicentennial year, we are emphasizing service to our communities as an important expression of our vision. No matter your passion, we want to hear about it. All University of Denver students, alumni, faculty and staff are encouraged to log your community service hours on this site.
Where can I go to learn about volunteer opportunities?
DU’s Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning maintains a volunteer opportunity database. You can get connected to opportunities that speak to your passion, or share an opportunity with your fellow DU colleagues.
Where can I go if I have questions or want to share my volunteer service story?
You can send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
and they will be forwarded to the appropriate department to answer. If you would like to share your volunteer service story, let us know, using the same email: email@example.com
