CSUSM on 2014 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll

By Margaret Chantung

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has named California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) to the 2014 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The Honor Roll recognizes institutions of higher education that support exemplary community service programs and raise the visibility of effective practices in community partnerships. It is the highest federal recognition an institution can receive for its commitment to community, service-learning and civic engagement.

CNCS, the federal agency for volunteering and service, has administered the award since 2006 in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, as well as the American Council on Education, Campus Compact, and the Interfaith Youth Core.

At CSUSM, students from every college on campus engage in community service learning, a recognized ‘high impact practice,’ and students from across the University take part in community service through a wide variety of projects and initiatives. All told, CSUSM's Honor Roll application boasted 3,955 students who provided the community with 256,459 hours of service during the 2013-14 academic year.
