Submit Your Service Hours

The process for logging service hours has changed. Please view the video tutorial below before making your first submission.


We are excited to announce that we have a new service tracking software that we are unveiling this year, called GivePulse. This software will help us better keep record of the service hours of Drury University students, faculty, and staff. Community engagement and service are integral to Drury’s mission and values so we encourage you to submit ALL service that you complete. The link below will direct you to the software:

How to Login to the GivePulse Software for the First Time

How to Log Your Service Hours Using the GivePulse Software

The software can be accessed from anywhere by using your web browser and visiting: drury.givepulse.com

This new software now allows students to view their service hours in real time, without having to ask the Office of Community Outreach and Leadership Development to pull a report for them. It can also be used by groups to track service hours for ALL members or to create service opportunities for your group. To find out more about how you can utilize this software for yourself or your group, contact the office of Community Outreach and Leadership Development at (417) 873-6803 or leadership@drury.edu.
