- 2007 Program Now Underway -
Applications Due October 5
"“I am representing not only Elon University, but all of the universities selected for the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. … Each of us has our own stories, our own reasons to serve. But my generation is united in the belief that the choices we make now define our moral selves and determine the ethical character of the world we inhabit and leave to future generations. And this is why we serve.”
-- Katie Franck, Elon University student
at 2006 Honor Roll ceremony
The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, recognizes institutions of higher education that support exemplary student community service and service-learning programs, thereby encouraging growth in the number of college students engaged in community service and service-learning each year.
In 2007, the Honor Roll will focus on two categories: General Community Service and Special Focus Area, which for 2007 is service that supports improved high school graduation and college readiness of youth from disadvantaged circumstances. All colleges and universities that made meaningful contributions to community service during the 2006-2007 academic year are invited to apply, and applications are due October 5, 2007. Applicants and honorees for the 2006 Honor Roll must reapply for consideration for this year’s program.
The Honor Roll is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, and is sponsored by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, the USA Freedom Corps, and the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development. A number of higher education associations, including the American Council on Education and Campus Compact have endorsed the Honor Roll and are encouraging member institutions to apply.
