Carson-Newman University Awarded Highest Presidential Honor for Community Service!
The Corporation for National and Community Service and the U.S. Department of Education recently awarded Carson-Newman University with the Presidential Award in the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for its commitment to bettering the community through community service and service learning.
Five higher education institutions, including Carson-Newman, received the Presidential Award, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to community service. The universities will be honored later today at the annual American Council on Education meeting in Los Angeles. Carson-Newman and North Carolina State University will be lauded for General Community Service, which represents both the scope and quality of an institution’s community service, service-learning, and civic engagement programs.
The Bonner Center at Carson-Newman University is proud to be part of Carson-Newman's dedication to service and to facilitate the Bonner Scholars, who "act as community liaisons and drive service participation on campus through a number of programs, including BOOST."
