Student Service Recognition

The College of Law is proud of our students’ commitment to pro bono and community service work.  To recognize students' efforts, we have created a special recognition program. In order for a student to receive special recognition at graduation, a student must be in good academic standing and have completed at least 50 hours of volunteer work.
  • 80% of the hours completed must be law related pro bono work. 
  • 20% of the hours can be traditional community service (such as volunteering at homeless shelters, soup kitchens, tutoring, home building projects, etc.).

There are two categories of Pro Bono and Community Service Recognition Awards:

  1. Students who complete the minimum 50 hours will receive a certificate from the Dean and special recognition at Commencement.
  2. Students who complete 75+ hours will receive a Blue Pro Bono and Community Service Honor Cord. 
  3. Students who complete 100+ hours will receive an Orange Pro Bono and Community Service Honor Cord to be worn at Commencement.
