This ‘record’ on the application does not solicit applicants to cite successes or the amount of work needed to fulfill these commitments.
There are no ‘automatic’ points for ten items, and points should not be withheld for listing less than ten items. While it may be natural to do so, and inherently likely, there should be no favor to individuals who hold positions such as president, chair, etc. in ten organizations. The favor should be to individuals who demonstrate engagement outside of the classroom.
