Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013

OLLU has been named to the 2013 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). This is the fourth consecutive year OLLU has earned distinction on the Honor Roll.

The Honor Roll highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in the communities they serve.

The CNCS looked at OLLU's institutional commitment and support of service, evaluation and assessment to improve the quality of interventions, developing long-term, collaborative community partnerships, and addressing significant community needs with measurable impacts. 

Through the Center for Service-Learning and Volunteerism, Community Counseling Center, Education Department, Psychology Department, the Worden School of Social Service, the Harry Jersig Center and Career Services, OLLU students completed 88,686 hours of service to the community between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.
