The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll recognizes institutions that support exemplary service programs and raise the visibility of effective practices in campus community partnerships.
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) first administered the award in 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.
Honor Roll Constituents
The 2016 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll is still undergoing review. For up-to-date announcements.
The Honor Roll’s Presidential Award is the highest federal recognition an institution can receive for its commitment to community, service-learning, and civic engagement. The Presidential Award is presented to four institutions—one for general community service, economic opportunity, education, and interfaith community service. These schools reflect the best practices in the specified category for community service and service-learning, including long-term campus-community partnerships and measurable community outcomes as a result of their service.
Honor Roll Award Finalists are a small group of institutions that are considered for, but do not receive, the Presidential Award. These institutions demonstrate high standards of community service, measurable outcomes, and success within specified service programs. See the full list of Awardees below.
