Guidelines for Bengal Stripes Leadership Program

In order to complete the community service requirement of the Bengal Stripes Leadership Program, students will:

  • Make an appointment and meet with a staff member in the Civic and Community Engagement Office for an orientation and one-on-one support with identifying a nonprofit organization where you can complete your community service action item that fits your interests. You can reach the CCE in South Wing 130 or at and 716-878-3919,


  • Complete 20 hours of community service at one singular nonprofit organization so you are able to invest your time and talents into the organization, its mission, and the community issue being impacted. If completing community service hours at Buffalo State sponsored events (i.e. Bengal Dare to Care Day, Anne Frank Project Social Justice Festival), students are able to list Buffalo State as their service organization.


  • Submit the Service Hour Log to Student Leadership and Engagement in Campbell Student Union 400.  This document must be signed and verified by the volunteer coordinator or contact person at the nonprofit organization where you completed your community service.
