President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll Award
President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll designation is the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement. The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measureable outcomes in the communities they serve.
Applications for the recognition are evaluated on the university's three exemplary projects based on the scope of the project, evidence of project effectiveness, and impact on the community. For each project, the Community Engagement office, is required to provide the number of students and staff who participated in the project, the total number of service hours, the number of individuals served, and the effectiveness of the project.
