1864 SERVICE CHALLENGE
The 1864 Service Challenge is an important expression of our University's commitment to the public good. As DU community members, we are challenging each other to achieve a combined 186,400 hours of community service by the end of 2014.
Visit du.edu/1864challenge to learn more and log your hours (you may log any service hours dating back to Jan. 1, 2014).
Sesquicentennial In-Service Program
The objective of the Sesquicentennial In-Service Program is to reinforce the University's support for the sesquicentennial year and our vision to be a great private university dedicated to the public good.
Appointed and Non-Appointed employees are allowed to utilize one day, with pay, to volunteer on a community or university service project. In-Service time off (ISTO) hours will not be reflected in your available vacation or sick time allotments. The ISTO days taken must be discussed and approved by your supervisor prior to taking the ISTO day.
Please direct any questions about the In-Service Program to Human Resources at 303-871-7420.
