ACE News Detail: Siena Earns Place in 2013 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll
By Jennifer Hunt
Siena College's commitment to service with the poor and marginalized and building a world that is more just, peaceable and humane has earned the college national recognition with selection to the 2013 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Launched in 2006, the Honor Roll is the highest federal distinction an institution of higher education can receive for its commitment to improving their communities through volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement.
The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll annually highlights the role colleges and university's play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in the communities they serve.
"We congratulate the awardees and the students for their dedication to service," said Wendy Spencer, chief executive officer of the Corporation for National and Community Service. "These institutions have inspired students and faculty alike to roll up their sleeves and work alongside members of the community to solve problems and improve their neighbors' lives."
