CENTER FOR COMMUNITY ACTION AND RESEARCH: EMPOWERING SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE THINKERS

Background

For more than two decades, the Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) has supported civic engagement, social responsibility, and reciprocal partnership with the community, resulting in enriched learning for positive change. Housed within the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, the CCAR's programs serve the entire university through curricular and co-curricular initiatives, coordination of national civic engagement programs, and support of ongoing community partnerships.

Project Description

Students at Pace complete thousands of hours community service hours through Civic Engagement and Public Service courses (100 + sections per year) in addition to individual and group/club service hours. Currently these hours are collected through paper based community service verification forms and processed by faculty and staff. We seek to create a system by which the Pace community can log these hours electronically.

Dr. Tappert recommends a frontend web interface to a backend database using PHP and MySQL.
