Congratulations to NC Campus Compact member campuses that were named to the 2010 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll!

Launched in 2006, the Honor Roll recognizes colleges and universities nationwide for exemplary, innovative, and effective community service programs. The Corporation for National and Community Service 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.

This year a total of 641 colleges and universities were recognized for their impact on issues from literacy and neighborhood revitalization to supporting at-risk youth. Of that total, 511 were named to the Honor Roll, 114 received the recognition of Honor Roll with distinction, 11 were identified as finalists, and six received the Presidential Award. Thirty-three North Carolina institutions were named to the honor roll, five with distinction. Twenty-eight are NC Campus Compact members.
