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.
The Honor Roll's Presidential Award, given each year to only a handful of institutions, is the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement. 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.
Areas campus-wide at Creighton provided data for the report, which included the Creighton student's academic service-learning and community service during the academic year. In December, the Office of Academic Excellence and Assessment shared a presentation with representatives from the areas the value of the input into the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
