Hello WLP! Thanks for a great semester and year of community engaged scholarship! Please log your hours and if you need more virtual hours to meet course requirements read on!
A few reminders as we head into the last days of classes and finals. You can of course continue to submit hours for your classes until the last day of finals (or, when faculty tell you hours are due) however…

Tomorrow is the last day to submit hours for service awards for this year! If you are graduating, this is especially important so you can get your cords and awards-which will be mailed to you. Anyone who serves 100 or more hours in a year is eligible for an award. Please make sure you log all of your hours today or tomorrow that you want considered for the award. Information on awards can be found here https://serve.gwu.edu/awards-and-recognition.

Please remember when you log hours to add your impact to your community partner and just click the box for your class at the end-not the other way around. You can find step by step instructions on how to add hours here: https://gwstudent.webex.com/gwstudent/ldr.php?RCID=d0f2f0880acf0ae7d439e28b7e3ecf4f

And if you’ve submitted hours incorrectly how to edit hours here:


Please remember to make your impacts public and not private so your community partner can approve them. The video also shows that process.

Two additional reminders:

We invite all students to share their experience in each of their community engaged scholarship courses with us. We and our faculty and our community partners and future students benefit from this feedback so please take the time to share it with us. The link to the survey is here: http://gwserves.givepulse.com/survey/take/WUEpN3bi1TrQckn944uL

If your faculty member has told you that your course is participating in the virtual symposium on community engaged scholarship, or if you would just like to present, please check out this blog for how to prepare for the virtual symposium https://blogs.gwu.edu/nashmanfacultyupdate/2020/04/10/join-us-for-the-spring-2020-virtual-symposium-on-community-engaged-scholarship/and don’t forget to upload your presentation!

If you have trouble uploading please email rachellt@gwmail.gwu.edu and I can help you with that process.

Also many students have asked how they can still get more hours by serving virtually because they need them for their course, or because they want to help –there are hundreds of options for virtual service on givepulse check out how to find them in 3 clicks here: https://blogs.gwu.edu/nashmanfacultyupdate/2020/04/01/opportunities-for-virtual-service-across-the-country/

If you are doing/have done service that is not part of a organization-you’ve sewn masks, or you’ve called elderly people in your neighborhood to check up on them-please submit that service here https://givepul.se/08xhfg and then click “add impact” and be sure to click the box for your class if you want/need it to count towards hour requirements-you’ll need to write a few sentences of reflection and/or attach a photo for approval.

This will be a great way for many of you to get some good ideas on which organizations you would like to serve and see presentations that you will be doing in spring. You do not have to be a presenter to attend!
Mid-term check in-Have you submitted all your service hours so far? You can submit your hours by clicking the “add impact” button on your class page –or clicking on your community partners page and clicking “add impact” be sure to share your impact with both your community partner and by clicking the box for your class! Last year GW students served over 750,000 hours-thank you for serving this semester https://serve.gwu.edu/service-hours
Hello! Checking in again many of you guys have not signed the service waiver, and it is required before you start serving here is the link https://gwserves.givepulse.com/survey/take/wq9uJGH00MH7Ju7oCCVe it should take less than 2 minutes! I also noticed there isn't a lot of impacts if you are having trouble finding places to serve feel free to reach out to me at aemebte@gwu.edu so I can connect you to different organizations. Don't wait until the last minute to create your impacts because they need time to be verified. If you have any trouble with logging your impacts let me know. Have a great rest of your week!
