Service Requirement

In 2007, University Honors students began completing a campus service requirement. University Honors students are required to complete a minimum of ten hours of on-campus service each semester during the sophomore year. Each student is responsible for keeping signed time sheets and submitting them before Reading Day each applicable semester.

Service opportunities must first be approved by the University Honors Director.

Campus service is work performed by a person or group of people for the benefit and betterment of their campus community. The importance of campus service lies in the fact that it connects us to the Arkansas Tech Campus by improving it and making it a better place for all of us to live in. Campus service can raise awareness of social issues and the needs of the campus.

Please make sure that you are reliable. If you volunteer for a service project, please make sure that you complete the time for which you volunteered. Service should be completed in whole hour increments. 


Students shall not be required to drive a vehicle. Students shall not be used to conduct the personal business of any individual (i.e. pick up clothes from the cleaners, babysit, etc.). Activities serving the interests of an individual or student organization ordinarily will not count as service. Participation in most extracurricular activities (e.g. holding office in SGA or cheerleading) will also not count as campus service. Students should not be required to work more than four hours in one day. No work should involve power tools, hazardous chemicals, heavy lifting, or any other object that would normally be considered dangerous. Students are not to be given access to confidential records, nor should they be used for work normally done by work-study or non-work-study student personnel. Students should never be responsible for the care or supervision of minor children. Students should never be required to interact with individuals charged with or convicted of felony crimes or sex offenses of any type or nature. Students should never be placed in an environment where discrimination based upon race, religion, sex, color, national origin, disability, age, or veteran status is known or suspected to exist or to have existed previously.
