Make It Count - Report Your Volunteer Hours!

If you are a student or F&M professional staff member and volunteer in our community, please click on the Make It Count! link to the left to report your hours of service. Please complete this form whenever you volunteer. These hours will be used to submit data for the annual President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
