President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll Deadline Dec. 16
By Cecilia M. Orphan, National Manager, American Democracy Project
Last year, 18 American Democracy Project campuses were listed in the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. I’m hoping many more campuses will be listed in this year’s Honor Roll. ADP campuses are leaders in the movement to prepare informed, engaged citizens for our democracy. The Honor Roll is one way for ADP campuses to be recognized for their hard work. To apply for the Honor Roll, please visit this website.
The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually recognizes institutions of higher education for their commitment to and achievement in community service. The President’s Honor Roll increases the public’s awareness of the contributions that colleges and their students make to local communities and the nation as a whole. President Obama has pledged to make service a central cause of his administration and wishes to commemorate the significant role that higher institutions, their students, staff, and faculty play in helping to solve pressing social problems in the nation’s communities.
The Corporation for National and Community Service opened registration on September 20, 2010 for the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The final deadline for 2010 application submission is December 16, 2010. For more information visit the Honor Roll’s registration site.
