2013 CIRP Freshman Survey: Community Service

The CIRP Freshman Survey asks several questions related to students' reported community service activities. The information below is based on the responses of fall 2013 incoming first-year students on the Oxford campus of Miami University. Also included are trend data for Miami first-year students for the past 5-30 years and comparison results for students at other highly selective public institutions.

Volunteer/Community Service Experiences in High School
Incoming Miami students are slightly less likely than students at other highly selective public universities to report performing volunteer work in their last year of high school. Nearly 78% of incoming Miami students performed volunteer work during their last year of high school. Incoming Miami students and incoming students at other highly selective institutions are equally likely to report performing community service as part of a class during the past year. Over the past five years, the percentage of incoming Miami students who performed community service as part of a class has decreased.

Community Service Goals
Miami students are slightly more likely than students from other highly selective public universities to report that becoming a community leader is a very important or essential goal. However, students at other highly selective public universities place slightly more importance than Miami students on helping others who are in difficulty and becoming involved in programs to clean up the environment. Over the past five years, the percentage of incoming Miami students who believe becoming involved in programs to clean up the environment is an essential or very important goal has decreased.
