With the number of community service hours performed during 2018-19 totaling 24,883 hours, it’s clear that giving back is part of our DNA. In fact, Endicott student community service participation stands at 56 percent, which is double the national average.
Recognized for Doing GoodEndicott community service statistics. In a celebration at Suffolk University, it was announced that our students completed the most hours of community service during the second annual Boston-area college Community Service Challenge, a friendly six-week competition among colleges and universities, organized by Suffolk, that increases each school’s community service engagement. This year’s participants were Endicott, Suffolk University, Babson College, Fisher College, Lesley University, Olin College, and Regis College. In line with the competition’s aim of “doing common good for the Commonwealth,” all participating schools made impressive community service contributions. Endicott led the way with more than 9,000 hours of community service over the course of the competition.
Endicott students engaged in more than 100 projects from March 1 to April 15, many with local chapters of national organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Family Promise, Rise Against Hunger, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the American Cancer Society, among others.
“Service is truly engrained in Endicott’s culture. Every day I feel lucky that I get to work with students who put giving back and supporting others at the top of their priority list, as well as diverse nonprofits that give us ample platforms to serve and help those in need.”
—Andrea Rhoades, assistant director of community service
