Brandeis placed on White House honor roll for community service commitment
Brandeis University has been named to the 2012 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
The honor roll is the federal government's highest recognition of commitment to service and civic engagement on campus and in the nation, which recognizes institutions that achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in the communities they serve. Launched in 2006, it highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing students on a lifelong path of civic engagement. It's part of the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages more than five million Americans in service through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America and leads President Obama's national call to service initiative, United We Serve.
The 2012 Honor Roll recipients were announced at the American Council on Education’s 94th Annual Meeting Ahead of the Curve on March 12 in Los Angeles, CA.
