Service Transcript

Students with rakes on campus

The Service Transcript Program provides a record of the service that Rockhurst students perform during their college careers. Service transcripts may come in handy when completing scholarship applications, graduate school applications or during internship or employment interviews.

To begin your service transcript:

1. Create your profile on Engage Rockhurst

2. Look for service opportunities

3. Submit your hours on Engage Rockhurst. Hours that are in response to a volunteer opportunity, will be approved by the organization who posted the opportunity. If you submit hours completed outside of Engage Rockhurst, you will need to include the complete contact information of the volunteer supervisor before the hours can be approved.

Community Service

Voluntary community service may be a one-time, short-term project or a lengthy, on-going commitment by a group or an individual. Community service is not compensated monetarily (i.e. money, room, board, etc.) and benefits others. Examples of voluntary community service: tutoring a young student, working on a Habitat for Humanity house, Finucane Service Project, Safe Trick-or-Treat, coaching an athletic team, Scouting ecology badge workshop, participating in a blood drive, AIDS Walk, fundraising to donate to another organization, serving dinner at St. James Soup Kitchen.

Service-Learning

Service-learning is a combination of community service and academic study. Through the assignment of a project that addresses community needs, students learn from community members and develop leadership skills while practicing theoretical knowledge gained in class. Service given as part of a service-learning course is recorded on the Service Transcript.
