The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has honored over 600 institutions of higher education for their leadership in support of volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.
Six colleges and universities received Presidential Awards in the 2010 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition an institution can receive for its commitment to community service. The winners are Augsburg College (MN), Rollins College (FL), San Francisco State University (CA), Loyola University Chicago, and St. Mary's University (TX).
Honorees are chosen based on a series of factors, including the scope and innovation of service projects, the extent to which service-learning is embedded in the curriculum, the school's commitment to long-term campus-community partnerships and measurable community outcomes as a result of the service.
CNCS oversees the Honor Roll in collaboration with ACE, the Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, and Campus Compact.
