How many community service hours do I need to complete?
You must complete 20 hours of community service for the gray level and 40 hours for the red level.
How do I log my community service hours?
You will log your community service hours through givepulse, the Drury method for tracking service hours for all organizations. Please visit www.drury.edu/volunteer/submit-your-service-hours for detailed instructions on how to sign up. After you sign up, please join the Passport Group so we can start tracking your hours.
How do we track attendance?
The Passport Program uses the Fanthers app to track attendance.
In order to get credit for your events, make sure to put in all of your profile information including your name, email address, Drury ID, and check "yes" under the Passport Participant bar.
We send out weekly emails to let you know how many more events you need to attend to get your prize!
What if my Fanthers app isn't working?
You can send a picture or evidence of your attendance of an event to email@example.com in case the app is malfunctioning and you will receive credit.
What if I don't have a smartphone?
You will have a similar process to that taken by study abroad students. You can set up an individualized plan with firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your events and verified community service hours.
We will send Monthly & Weekly emails to update you on your progress. You can also log in to the Fanthers App and look for any events that state "PASSPORT APPROVED."
You almost always have your phone on you, and that's the easiest way to check-in. If for some reason you forgot to hit "Check-in" on the Fanthers App, feel free to email us at email@example.com. If you have pictures, ticket stubs, or anything else to prove you were at the event, that definitely helps!
The app allows you to check-in once you arrive at the event! As long as you and your phone are physically at the event, you'll be able to "Check-in."
YES! We are always looking for events to add on campus and off. Please feel free to submit an event to the Student Event Registration page. Once your event is approved, we will add it to the Fanthers App and DCal.
You can receive credit for attending away games. You must check-in to the event via the Fanthers App or submit a proof of attendance to the Student Activities Office (FSC 124) in a timely manner.
YES! That's one of the great things about the program. You will just scan in like all the other students at each event. Students CAN earn credit for attending events they are required to attend for class credit, team membership, or other required participation. I.e. Someone on an athletic team can earn credit for playing in a match/game, a student acting in a play or performing in a concert can earn credit for participating in that event.
Students are required to confirm with the Passport office that we have all the events you attended recorded accurately each semester. When you scan in at the event, be sure you see the big green check mark on the screen. Keep track of the events you attended on your Passport worksheet so you can compare your records with ours!
That's one of the life lessons the Panther Passport Program teaches. Each student will need to utilize the worksheet and PLAN OUT their activities for the semester/year. We will regularly add new events to the Fanthers App but it will be impossible for you to complete all of your attendance requirements the last couple of months of the academic year. The key to success is planning.
Service hours will be verified through the Community Outreach office and will require a signature from the site supervisor where you completed your volunteer hours.
At each intramural sport championship game, you’ll have a chance to check-in on the Fanthers App.
At this time, you’ll be rewarded by direct deposit or a check in your name.
Sign ups are at the beginning of each year, if you miss this year, you can try again next year.
Sure, you will still be able to request a print out of all the events you attended. This might be helpful as you create your resume.

There is a specific worksheet you will work from during your Study Abroad Experience. Prior to departure, schedule a time to meet with the Director of Greek Life & Student Activities to go over the requirements, tracking and reporting. You will also need to schedule a time to meet again once you return for the attendance audit.
Director of Greek Life & Student Activities, FSC 124, (417) 873-3061 or the Panther Passport Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In extreme circumstances, this may be possible. Contact the Director of Greek Life & Student Activities.
