14 CSU Campuses Nationally Recognized for Volunteer Service
NEWS RELEASE - October 6, 2016, by CSU PUBLIC AFFAIRS
Fourteen California State University campuses have been named to the 2015 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll—the highest federal honor that universities can receive for their commitment to community service, service-learning, and civic engagement.
The honor roll recognizes U.S. colleges and universities that support exemplary community service programs and raise the visibility of best practices in campus community partnerships. CSU campuses have consistently been recognized since the honor roll was created in 2006 by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
"CSU campus community engagement programs have played a critical role in helping the university prepare students to be successful, informed, active and committed leaders," said Judy Botelho, CSU's director of the Center for Community Engagement. "We are honored to continue to be recognized by the Honor Roll for our commitment to service-learning, engaged scholarship and civic engagement."
The Honor Roll lists the 14 CSU campuses among three categories: general community service, education services, and economic opportunity services. San Bernardino and Stanislaus were recognized for their achievements in all three categories.
General Community Service:
Honor Roll with Distinction: Channel Islands, Dominguez Hills, Fresno and San Francisco
Honor Roll: Chico, East Bay, Fullerton, Long Beach, Monterey Bay, Northridge, Pomona, San Bernardino, San Marcos and Stanislaus
Honor Roll: San Bernardino and Stanislaus
Honor Roll: Chico, Fresno, Northridge, San Bernardino, San Francisco and Stanislaus
Fourteen CSU campuses are also designated with the Carnegie Foundation's Community Engagement Classification, which recognizes colleges and universities' commitment to service learning and alignment of community engagement efforts with their institutional mission, culture, resources and practices.
The CSU was the first higher education system in the nation to establish a system office supporting service learning and community engagement. According to CSU Center for Community Engagement data, nearly 68,000 students had the opportunity to participate in 3,139 service-learning courses across the system in 2015-16. Today, more than half of the CSU's 475,000 students are engaged in some type of community service, totaling 32 million hours of service annually.
