Community Service and Activities on-campus

Unlike the rest of the CAS students, we do not have a specific community service requirement in Johnston. We know that our students are engaged in many kinds of living-learning activities-- both in and out of the Johnston community-and that some of these experiences are community service within and/or without the Johnston community. Johnston students use the contract to acknowledge a range of volunteer work in campus organizations, Johnston community life, athletics, and! or off campus organizations. We encourage you to list these activities in your contract, even if you did not receive academic credit for them.
