U-M-Flint named to presidential honor roll

U-M-Flint has been honored by The Corporation for National and Community Service with a place on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for exemplary service efforts and service to America's communities.

Launched in 2006, the Community Service Honor Roll is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve for its commitment to service-learning and civic engagement.

Honorees for the award were 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.

"We are very proud of the community engagement activities of the faculty, students, staff, and alumni of the University of Michigan-Flint," Provost Jack Kay says. "They partner with the community to make a true difference in the quality of life in our community."

"In this time of economic distress, we need volunteers more than ever," says Stephen Goldsmith, vice chair of the board of directors of The Corporation for National and Community Service.

The Corporation for National and Community Service is a federal agency that improves lives, strengthens communities, and fosters civic engagement through service and volunteering. For more information, go to www.nationalservice.gov.
