The Heider College of Business believes that business should be a positive force in society – which is why our education is rooted in the Jesuit tradition. The Dean’s Honor Roll for Social Responsibility honors undergraduate and graduate students who take the initiative to put their community first.
Undergraduate students in the Heider College of Business who have performed 25 hours and graduate students who have performed 15 hours of confirmed community service by the last day of class in a semester and have actively participated in a Companion Group.
Students will be placed on the Dean’s Honor Roll for Social Responsibility for the semester that the community service is confirmed. Honor Roll designation appears on the students’ transcripts and Certificates of Achievement are mailed to the students’ home addresses. Students will be eligible to achieve the following levels of distinction:
Bronze Level: 15-24 Hours (Graduate Students Only)
Silver Level: 25-49 Hours
Gold Level: 50-74 Hours
Platinum Level: 75+ Hours
Active participation in a Companion Group is also required in order to be recognized on the Dean’s Honor Roll for Social Responsibility.
Community Service is defined as volunteer service for a non-profit organization or an organized community activity. Service performed through class activities, university-sponsored service trips, sororities and fraternities count as community service. Any service done for punishment does not count as community service. Confirmation forms should be submitted within one week of service through our Blueline course. All confirmation forms must be submitted by the last day of classes for the semester.
After joining the Dean’s Honor Roll for Social Responsibility course on Blueline, students will be invited to join a Companion Group, also hosted through Blueline, and required in order to earn recognition. Throughout the semester, questions and resources will be presented to each group to facilitate online discussions. Companion Groups serve as a forum for students to compare service experiences and integrate service work into their personal and professional lives.
