The University of San Diego was recognized this month as one of 141 colleges and universities honored for Distinguished Community Service in the first-ever “President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.”

 

The selection was made by the Corporation for National and Community Service, an independent federal agency tasked with fostering an ethic of volunteerism and service in America.

 

Community service programs and activities conducted by the Honor Roll schools included mentorship programs for foster children, literacy tutoring for pre-school children in underserved communities, medical and other professional services, homebuilding through Habitat for Humanity and neighborhood clean-up programs.

 

More than 1.1 million students from the Honor Roll schools participated in local community service activities. For more information, visit www.nationalservice.gov/honorroll.
