Service & Philanthropy

At Northwest, we encourage our organizations to be involved in both on and off-campus events! Our student organizations have a longstanding history of participating in service and philanthropy events. However, these events should be considered as separate forms of volunteering. The video below walks through what counts as service, as well as what counts as philanthropy.

SERVICE HOURS & HOW TO LOG

All members of Greek Life and other student organizations should track their service hours using Bearcat Link.

Step 1https://nwmissouri.presence.io/ - log in with your private ID (S#) and password 
Step 2: On the main menu at the top right, click "Forms"
Step 3: Click the form labeled "Apply for Opportunity" 
Step 4: Choose the organization you are logging the hours for 
Step 5: Click on the "Opportunity Type" box and select "Service Hours" from the dropdown
Step 6: A new field will show up to the right of the box you just clicked. Put the amount of hours you served in this field, which will be labeled "Service Hours"
Step 7: Fill out the rest of the form with all of your information (all fields are required)
Step 8: Submit your form, and you're done! The OSI will review your hours as soon as possible.

 

If you have questions regarding how to log your service hours, submissions, or if an activity counts as service, please email the Service and Engagement graduate assistant at servega@nwmissouri.edu.

Donating money to an organization's cause is constituted as philanthropy, NOT service.

Philanthropy hours & how to log

PLEASE NOTE: Philanthropy is almost exclusively for Greek organizations. Unless your group has consulted the OSI and you've been approved for tracking philanthropy hours as well, you will not need to do so.

All Greek students should track their philanthropy hours using Bearcat Link.

If you have questions regarding how to log your philanthropic hours, submissions, or if an activity counts as a philanthropic event, please email the Service and Engagement graduate assistant at servega@nwmissouri.edu.

Philanthropic gestures can be measured in hours, but do NOT constitute as service hours.
