Sixteen CSU Campuses Named to President’s Community Service Honor Roll

Sixteen CSU campuses were recognized in the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for their commitment to community service. The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll commends institutions for encouraging students to make significant contributions to the community through volunteer work, placing students in service-learning opportunities that help solve community issues, and leading students to pursue a lifelong path of civic engagement.

This year, a total of 695 higher education institutions were named to the Honor Roll.
