Olivet College named to 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll
Jul 20, 2011

Olivet College has been named to the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service.

The CNCS oversees the honor roll in collaboration with the Department of Education, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Campus Compact, and the American Council on Education. Honorees are chosen based on a series of selection factors including scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentives for service, and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.

Olivet College was recognized for its exemplary, innovative and effective community service programs. The college is dedicated to providing course-based service learning that addresses community needs while instilling in students the ethic of Education for Individual and Social Responsibility. At least once during their undergraduate experience, students at Olivet are required to complete a three semester hour service learning course offered by an academic department. Each service learning course requires students to spend a minimum of 40 hours serving the needs of the community. Such service is accompanied by reflection on that experience.

Launched in 2006, the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll annually recognizes institutions of higher education for their commitment to and achievement in community service. The honor roll increases the public’s awareness of the contributions that colleges and their students make to local communities and the nation as a whole.
