Our Best Answer:
What counts as community service?

Community Service Criteria

Community service is defined as helping people in need through non-profit organizations that are consistent with the Mission of UIW. You may not be paid. Internships, practicums, clinicals or earning course credit do not count.

In an effort to make the process easy for the entire University community, the Ettling Center for Civic Leadership has set up various links and portals on the CardinalsSync system ( ) to allow students to learn of the various community service opportunities both on/off campus, track and maintain the number of service hours completed.

Should you have questions or need any additional information, please visit the Ettling Center for Civic Leadership website at, visit the office-located in room 158 of the Administration Building or feel free to call and speak to a staff member at (210) 283-6423.
